RIPTIDE COWL is a unisex textured cowl with simple lace panels encapsulated in a broken rib stitch. It is worked top down in the round. The cowl features an optional front split seam to allow for a snug fit either under or over your coat.

Riptide Cowl is worked in one piece, from the top down. There is an option to work 2 splits in the lower half of the cowl. If this is chosen the lower halves of the cowl are worked flat, otherwise work is continued in the round.
The pattern contains written instructions and charted instructions.
