Totality Cowl Kit by Shaina Bilow

The Totality Cowl by Shaina Bilow is worked in a chevron pattern. Featuring two hand dyed hanks of yarn by Yarn Snob, this is a worsted weight accessory that you’ll love to wear (and love to knit!). It’s wide enough to be worn as a single-loop around the neck, but looks great and is super-cozy when wrapped twice around the neck.

This cowl is made in one piece. Stitches are cast on for the width and the chevron pattern is worked until the final length is achieved. The cast on edge and bind off edge are then seamed together. There is an I-cord edge along the edged to hide the carried yarn and create a smooth finish at the edge.
