Gradient Wrap Cowl is an easy and fast project that takes a slightly different twist on the traditional cowl. It is knit lengthwise (working back and forth on a circular needle), and features 3 different sections of stripes using 3 different colors to create a gradient affect. Once complete, stitches are picked up on either end to create button bands. The finished piece looks like a scarf (and can be worn that way too if you prefer), but you can also wrap it around your neck and then button to secure in place to wear as a cowl.
