This cozy, clever pattern starts out as a tube worked in mosaic knitting. Using one basic pattern you can create a custom-sized, double-layer hat or cowl. For a hat, the cast on edge of the tube is fed up through the center and joined to the top edge with wrong sides facing. Then a simple stockinette crown closes the cap. For a cowl, the tube is fed through itself the same way, but then the cast-on edge is joined to the top edge with Kitchener stitch to make a closed doughnut shape. Both options are incredibly warm and luxurious when worked with HiKoo Simplinatural, an all-natural blend of alpaca, wool, and silk from South America.
