A dual sided/reversible cowl, with different textures on opposing sides.
Works up quickly in the round, with the 'knit' side facing (no purling at all, a joy for those who hate to purl)
Adjustments can be made in width by adding (or subtracting) any multiple of 2 stitches at CO, likewise adjustments in height can be made by working more or fewer rounds.
Simple to knit lace stitch pattern. The stitch pattern chart/description seems complex but is truly very simple ~ once you've done a few reps it nearly knits itself!
Needs blocking for full effect.
Suggest using a yarn with a high natural fiber content - for blocking memory.
