Denali is an Aztec-influenced two-colour cowl. The fabric is doubled for added warmth, but it is knit at a relaxed gauge that produces a beautiful drape. It is also reversible; the inside is worked in a simple salt and pepper pattern that provides a nice break from following the larger chart.
Knit in the round from side to side to form a doubled fabric, the cowl is finished by grafting live stitches to the cast on edge, forming a seamless tube. This construction gives the piece extra warmth and structure, and also allows for a continuous, jog-free colourwork pattern.
