An oh-so-elegant cowl that dresses up your neck in a most chic fashion! This cowl is knit in a simple cable and lace design with ribbed top and bottom edges in a gorgeous shade of purple. The kid mohair blend yarn is knit on a larger needle, giving the stitch pattern great depth and softness.
Wear the cowl doubled (as shown) for a sophisticated look, or casually looped around your neck as a circular scarf.
A deliberate single twist creates the mobius strip that allows this cowl to be worn so stylishly. The cowl is knit from top to bottom, then given the single twist and seamed.
It's a super easy and quick project with maximum gift-giving appeal! Uses less than 2 balls of the super sumptuous GGH Soft-Kid yarn.
