Cowl is cast on at the lower edge using one color, then joined and knit in the round using the Double Knitting method. Two layers of interwoven fabric are produced simultaneously by knitting in a 1×1 rib pattern, alternating knit and purl stitches between two contrasting colors. This results in a reversible piece of knitwear with Stockinette on both sides. Each side features the same image, with the colors inverted on the reverse side.
