Pattern Description:

Askew is a reversible cowl that is knit lengthwise on the bias. This makes it a versatile pattern, allowing the knitter to determine just how long or short they would like it to be. The seaming technique used to graft the ends together is specific to this knit-1-below brioche stitch pattern and therefore virtually invisible.
Silky Merino by Malabrigo Yarn allows for nice flow and drape in the fabric. Warm yet lightweight, this cowl is sure to please!
