Reject the X Cowl

The odder cousin to the Twisted X Neck Warmer, this cowl is first worked in the round, and then back and forth to provide a tighter fit around the neck.

It's called Reject the X because when I first blocked it, I though I had ruined it and came up with Twisted X instead.  Obviously, it ended up fine once it dried.

The highlights of this pattern are listed below. To get the actual pattern (pdf), please click here to download it (the pattern's free, don't worry).
