The Cowl Ribbing

Row 1: Ch 5, sc in the second chain from hook and across, slip stitch two stitches on the cowl edge, turn. 4 sts

Row 2: Skip the 2 edge slip sts, in blo sc 4, turn.

Row 3: Ch 1, in blo sc 4, sl st into the next two stitches on the cowl edge, turn.

Repeat Rows 2-3 ribbing around the cowl edge. To join the two edges together, fasten off and seam the beginning edge to the ending edge with a tapestry needle. Or, if preferred, slip stitch through the blo from the ending edge and the stitch from the beginning edge at the same time. Fasten off.

Join yarn to the beginning edge of the cowl and repeat the ribbing instructions.

Finishing the Cowl

Fasten off and weave in ends. Block aggressively to reduce slanting of the stitches.
