This quick and easy basketweave cowl can be knit in nearly any yarn weight, and is suitable for beginning knitters. This cowl reminds me of my days spent weav- ing and continuously reminds me of my forgotten hobby. Worked in the round, the reversible stitch is easy to mem- orize or adapt to other yarn weights. Instructions are also given for an infinity cowl, which can be worn looped around your neck multiple times.
Remember to check your gauge! Knit a little loosely, the woven stitch motif doesn’t tug or squish up like many knit/purl motifs. If your gauge results in more stitches per inch/cm, I would recommend going up a needle to achieve the desired flat effect of the cowl shown.
