563 Equilibrium Cowl
The Equilibrium Cowl from Valley Yarns is a wardrobe expanding, gender neutral, easy to wear and most of all, easy to knit cowl. Valley Yarn Colrain with its blend of merino and tencel provides the perfect balance for stitch articulation, drape and comfort.
Don't let the rib pattern intimidate or bore you. The k1,p1 round is offset by an alternating round of k1, slip 1. Simple repetition makes it a great project for knit night gatherings or traveling, when you need a project that does not demand all of your attention. This stitch combination results in attractive stitch pattern on both sides of the cowl.
