Cowl, stockinette/reverse stockinette stitches with garter stitch edge, alpaca yarn, size 5 straight 14" needles.
I cast on 99 stitches, then knit 5 rows of garter stitch. I started a stockinette stitch row and for the 50th stitch I reversed to a purl stitch. I am increasing the reverse stitches by two each row, which will create a diamond shape in reverse stockinette in a field of stockinette. I think that will be a good front panel for the cowl.
