This cowl pattern is influenced by one of the most well known architectural principles.
The pattern used three different stitch patterns to create sections of different elasticity and texture. The different sections serve different functional purposes - the mid section is knit in k1/p1 rib to provide optimum stretchiness so that the cowl hugs the neck closely. The upper/outer section is knit in half-brioche which draws in less than the ribbed section and therefore fits nicely over it without having to change the stitch count. The yoke section is raglan-shaped and knit in stockinette stitch to fit smoothly underneath any jacket.
16 sts - 24 rows / 4" (10cm) in stockinette stitch (after washing).
