This means that each cable cross involves twice as many stitches as are visible on the right side and consequently I highly recommend working them with a cable needle. The cowl is worked as a long, flat piece. It begins and ends with stockinette tubes which are grafted together to form a loop. Grafting in stockinette solves the problem of grafting opposite ends of a ribbed piece, which will always be visible misaligned by half a stitch. A twist is trapped within this stockinette section by arranging the stitches so that they’re offset by quarter of a round. The longer version is also twisted before grafting so that it’s easy to arrange in pleasing folds and has more interest when worn without double wrapping.
