A dual sided reversible cowl with different and unique texture on each side.

Works up fast with super bulky yarn and big needles.

Adjustments can be made in width by adding (or subtracting) any multiple of 2 stitches at CO, likewise adjustments in length can be made by working more or fewer rows.

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.

Materials:

90 yd/82 meter (=) super bulky yarn ~ Sample used 1 hank of Malabrigo Rasta, I highly recommend using the Rasta!
US 17/12.75 mm or US 15/10 mm needles ~ I knit tightly, and used US 17/12.75 mm for sample - if you knit loosely try the US 15/10 mm
Row counter
Tapestry needle ~ to sew in ends
Blocking wires or 'T' pins
Blocking surface

2 (+) pairs of different 1.25" -1.5" (3 - 4 cm) buttons ~ will be sewn together back to back to create 'anywhere' buttons
Elastic thread ~ for buttons


Gauge:

Gauge is not critical, but will affect yardage and size
For yarn/needle selection = 8 sts = 4" (10 cm)
Sample post-blocking measurements = 9" by 29.5" (23 by 75 cm)

Stitches/Abbreviations:
BO = bind off
CO = cast on
K = knit
K3tog = knit 3 together (knit 3 sts together as one - decreases by 2)
P = purl
RS = right side
rep = repeat
Slp = slip
St(s) = stitches
WS = wrong side
wyb = with yarn at back
wyf = with yarn at front
YO = yarn over
