This soft, squishy cowl is worked in the round using stranded colourwork. The resulting fabric is thicker and cushier than regular stockinette fabric. Pattern includes instructions for an unlined version with I-cord cast on and bind off and a reversible, lined version with reverse stockinette edging. The I-cord edging and the jogless barber pole stripe technique used for the lining are explained in the pattern.
