This cowl is so thick and squishy!

The texture and the color stripes really make each one unique and fun.

It was made with the leftover yarn from the Textured Tea Cakes Cocoon.

Edging

turn your cowl around to work on the opposite side of your foundation chain, and choose whatever end of the yarn ball give you your desired look.

We will be using Persian Stitch for the edging, which is basically a round of sc dec, with the first leg of the decrease being made in the same stitch as the previous stitch. This will allow for the nice texture without actually decreasing the number of stitches.

With the right side facing you, join your yarn to any stitch along the edge and ch 1, Persian Stitch around the opening, with the final stitch being worked in the last stitch of the opening and the first st with the ch 1. Join with a sl st and finish off.

Repeat the edging on the top side of the cowl, again, using whatever end of the yarn you like.

Weave in any ends.
