Strawberry Mountain Cowl kit by Kay Hopkins
Strawberry Mountain is a quick and easy cowl with simple striping and colorwork that looks impressive but is really just slipped stitches and uses only one color per row! The project is worked on the bias from one end to the other, starting with just 6 stitches, and is only slightly asymmetrical. The I-Cord edges are worked as you go so there’s no finishing to do and the bind-off is also I-Cord.
The superior fit of the cowl is due to the angled edges at the back neck. The angles are then seamed or you can optionally add loops and buttons for additional versatility in wearing.
