This fun, quick cowl is similar to the Gap's popular two-toned waffle cowlneck. My version gets its name from a waffle like stitch on one side and the "bird foot" like pattern on the reverse side. Worked up in a bulky weight and a worsted weight yarn in complimentary colors, the cowl drapes softly with a snuggly, squishy texture. The cowl is worked in the round using a circular needle. Even though it looks like it is created by using a stranded technique, only one yarn is worked in each round. This pattern uses terms and abbreviations as established by Nancy Marchant at and in her fantastic book, Knitting Brioche. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, k2tog, yarnover GAUGE 10 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in pattern stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 15" (38 cm) x 40" (102 cm)
