The design is simple as can be: a stockinette tube, which takes advantage of one of the simplest and most enjoyable ways to knit with self-striping yarn: stockinette stitch in the round, allowing you to enjoy the magic of the color changes that happen automatically and encouraging you to knit just one more stripe.
While a stockinette tube cowl can easily be knit without a pattern, I’ve devised several simple strategies to make the finishing work as easy as the knitting: The cowl starts with the easiest of all provisional cast-on methods: Judy's Magic Cast-On; and both ends of the tube are closed and then joined with garter stitch, so that only half of the stitches need to be grafted in the end.
7 1/2 inches wide when flat

Yarn: Designed for Must Stash Yarn’s special edition cowl set. 1000 yards of self-striping goodness.
Skills needed: Perfect for adventurous beginners as well as any knitter who loves stockinette stitch in the round.
