This is a DK cowl with an instarsia chart repeated around the outside. Unlike other Instarsia patterns you rotate your chart 90 degrees, this is so the cowl is knitted on straight needles. Great for those who want to practice there colourwork or those who don't knit in the round (yet). The cowl also has an extra plain stocking stitch panel on the reverse that makes it nice and thick and but also hides the back of the charts.
