What happens when you knit two, separate cowls, using the same needles, the same yarn, and the same basic stitch pattern, but you change a couple of minor details? You get two different, though obviously related, cowls. I made the above cowl twice, changing yarn colors. I knitted one in-the-round, and I knitted one back and forth, adding a round of all-knit to the pattern. As I was knitting the first one, I was pleasantly surprised to see a texture of bumps developing that fell into swirls, quite unexpectedly, as I worked. It made such a pretty, reversible fabric that I decided to leave it unblocked. I then cast on again, this time changing up the colors and knitting the pattern back and forth, working every-other-row in all knit to keep an obvious front and back appearance. The result is an equally beautiful, though completely different sister cowl. I love them both the same.
