Notes * This cowl is worked in the round. * The chart is worked using the stranded method. Always pick up the background color over the pattern color and pick up the pattern color from under the background color; this will prevent tangling. Keep floats loose. For floats longer than four stitches, tack stranded yarn on wrong side of work. Cowl With A, CO 176 sts. Place marker (pm) and join in the rnd. Work 6 rnds in k1, p1 rib. Knit 1 rnd. Join B.
