Olivia Cowl

Free

The Olivia Cowl’s basketweave stitch is really a “tromp l’oeil” technique that only uses knits and purls but appears to create a woven texture. This version puts a new twist on the whole concept: the stitch pattern is still worked in traditional back and forth rows, but has a simple bias slant built into the fabric, so the texture appears to be worked on the diagonal instead of straight. The bias effect gives this cowl a lovely drape. Worked with only one skein of naturally dyed merino, this little project is such fun to knit, it would make a great take-along project for a weekend trip.
