Twisted Cowl is the sister pattern to Daniel’s Hat and Scarf set, which is available from the Cast Off Chemo Ravelry store. This pattern features a seeded rib stitch with the occasional diagonal stripe. The diagonal stripe is made using increase and decrease stitches, so no cable needle is needed. Enjoy!

Thank you, Jessie. I like this stitch pattern a lot. Will try it.

What is the pattern repeat? Would like to knit with a sport weight yarn so will need to add more stitches. I have guessed it to be multiples of 4, but would like some reassurance. Thanks

I’m confused. Starting with Row 50, it states Row 50 again, then Row 51, Row 52 and then Row 46, Rows 47-54. Please clarify. How to complete when numbers are not consistent nor consecutive once Row 50 is used twice.

Sorry, cut and paste issues. I fixed it.
