Escarpment Cowl


Cuddle up in this snuggly, cozy cowl. It knits up in no time using a bulky fisherman’s rib, which is a cousin of the brioche stitch. It looks great with any outfit. The fabric is stretchy and mushy making it extra comfy.

This cowl is knit flat using a provisional cast on – the ends are then grafted together. Stitches are slipped at the sides making a soft edge and clean lines. This cowl has one size and has a slightly visible seam.
