This very simple cowl features horizontal welts by alternating Stockinette and reverse Stockinette stitch. The laceweight Silk Mist yarn creates a weightless accessory with the appearance of great volume. A piece like this is perfect for the transitional seasons of spring and fall, and would be equally useful on cool summer nights.
