Coffeehouse Knits provides endless knitting with simple & repeatable pattern projects like the beautiful Chai Latte Cowl. The Chai Latte Cowl is a perfect take-along project, and with only a two-row repeat, it is easy to knit while carrying on a conversation. The cowl begins with a 2 x 1 ribbing, transitioning into a Broken Rib pattern. As you work the cowl, a faux cable created by yarnovers and decreases creates a Stockinette section that widens as the Broken Rib pattern decreases, highlighting the contrast of the two stitch patterns, with the top border worked in a complementary 2×1 ribbing.
