The ribbing at the top is worked first, in the round, then the “shawl” portion is worked back and forth beginning with a few stitches. Yarnovers at the edges and centre create a triangle shape. Decreases are worked at the end of each row to join the triangle portion to the ribbed band. When all of the ribbing stitches have been consumed, the cowl continues in the round with a fun smocked chevron pattern followed by an effective geometric lace edging featuring little textured knots. The edge blocks out into sharp points.
