Sidetrack Cowl - Follow link Below to purchase!
The pattern is a Mobius cowl and begins with a provisional cast on. Section 1 of the pattern starts (where the motif is moving to the left) and is followed by Section 2 (where the motif is moving to the right). Section 1 and 2 will be repeated once more, for a total of 4 sections completed. The difference between Size 1 and 2 (fitted and relaxed cowl) is the number of repeats of section 1 and 2. Once completed, the cowl is blocked, the fabric is turned and grafted to the beginning of the cowl using Kitchener stitch
