FinishingThis step is optional and allows you to hide the color changes. You could also simply use large decorative buttons or simply ignore the small demarcations.
Using a simple strand of CC, surface slip stitch two straight line from the bottom to the top of the cowl up the side of the cowl to encase the color demarcations. Then, using 2 strands of MC, surface slip stitch three vertical stripes from the top to the bottom between the 2 CC lines. Weave in all ends!
*If you are careful weaving your ends, the cowl is completely reversible! You can also wear it folded for additional warmth!
