The Side Line Cowl is quick & easy to knit! At first glance you might think this pattern is just simple garter stitch. Look again! An easy P3, K3 repeat pattern creates a subtle striping effect. SKILL LEVEL: Easy You will need to know how to cast on stitches, knit and purl confidently, knit two stitches together, do a “yarn over” for the button hole, read a row by row knitting pattern, bind off stitches and weave in ends.
