Use a Merino or other soft, squishy yarn of choice to make Lisa McFetridge Simple Twist of Fate Cowl, an amazing two-tone cowl using a simple slip stitch and a half turn before grafting the ends together. Two pieces are knit flat, the ends joined with the Kitchener stitch, then the sides joined with an applied I-Cord (shown) or with a simple single crochet stitch. The stitch is simple, the construction is what pulls it together and helps it stand up. This cowl can easily be knit in a single color and work applied I-Cord in a contrasting color if desired.
