Pat­tern Notes

Cowl is worked as a rec­tan­gle. The piece is given a half-twist, then the cast-on row is grafted to the last row to form a moe­bius strip. Slip first stitch of each row purl­wise and knit last stitch. These edge stitches are not in­cluded as part of the Ro­man Lace pat­tern.

Cowl

Us­ing pro­vi­sional cast-on (see page 110), cast on 32 sts. Row 1: Sl 1, work Ro­man Lace to last st, k1. Slip­ping first st of ev­ery row and knit­ting last st, con­tinue in Ro­man Lace pat un­til piece mea­sures 40 inches, end­ing with Row 5. Cut yarn, leav­ing a 45-inch tail.

Fin­ish­ing

Re­move cro­chet chain from cast-on and trans­fer live sts to 2nd nee­dle. Give cast-on end a half twist. Hold­ing nee­dle with cast-on sts in front, join ends tog us­ing tail and Garter St Graft. Weave in ends.
