Foolproof Cowl

Description: Learn how to knit the Foolproof cowl by Louise Zazz-Bangham. This cowl requires NO casting on and NO binding off - there’s no knitting in the round, no sewing, no grafting, no provisional cast-on, and no picking up stitches (yes, seriously!). The cowl is knit in garter stitch, which is perfect for anyone new to knitting, and this inventive construction for a classic garment will keep any knitter interested!*

*Note: any size yarn and needles can be used - details can be figured out in class. You can also use more than 2 colors if you want.
