An easy to work leaf lace stitch is the center of this cowl. The slipped stitch cable borders echo the diagonal lines of the lace. After a provisional cast on, the cowl is worked back and forth in rows. The cowl is then seamed using kitchener stitch creating a loop with no itchy seams. Shown in a gradient dyed yarn. Try a tonal yarn or a solid color to best show off the stitch pattern.
