Double Loop Knit and Purl Cowl Pattern

Sometimes the simplest designs are just the best.  Big yarn + big needles = instant gratification knitting for me.  I got the idea to knit this one weekend when I needed something quick and easy to de-stress after a long week of work and crazy kiddos.  I had two skeins left of this  Wool and the Gang's Crazy Sexy Wool and ended up creating this awesome cowl.  Enjoy!

US 19 (15mm) 40" circular knitting needles
2 Skeins Wool and the Gang Crazy Sexy Wool (Color pictured is Sandtrooper Beige)
Tapestry needle
Stitch Marker

About 13 inches wide and 58 inches in circumference

6 stitches and 10 rows = 4 inches (note that gauge isn’t that important when knitting a scarf)

This is a very simple pattern that creates a unique look by the way the garment rolls on either end with the simple bind off.  The garment is meant to roll and will not lay flat.  You'll be completing stockinette stitch on the right side for half the width and then stockinette stitch on the wrong side for the last half.
