So let's make a cowl! First, then, we're going to start with a picot hem. You can find tons of tutorials for this online if you need extra help, but I'll walk you through the steps here as well. So, to begin, cast on 96 stitches loosely, place marker, and join in round. Knit five rows around. Then, work the following row:

A Treasury of Knitting Patterns, and goes like so (oh, and yes, I know that your hem currently looks like it climbed out a garbage can; it won't look good until you seam it at the end!). Anyway, we'll work as follows:

Rows 1 & 2: knit

Row 3: * k4, yo, ssk, k2; rep from *

Row 4: knit

Row 5: * k2, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k1 *

Row 6: knit

Row 7: * k4, yo, ssk, k2 *

Rows 8 - 10: knit

Row 11: * yo, ssk, k6 *
Row 12: knit
Row 13: * k1, yo, ssk, k3, k2tog, yo *

Row 14: knit

Row 15: * yo, ssk, k6 *

Row 16: knit

Knit rows 1 - 16 three times, and then knit rows 1 - 9 once more. Knit six rows around, and then we'll knit another picot row, as follows:

Picot Row: * yo, k2tog; rep from *

Complete this picot row, and then knit 5 rows around and bind off loosely. Then we'll finish the picot hems! To do this, begin on one end of the cowl, and fold the edge between the cast-on/cast-off and the picot row over, so that the yo's from the picot row form a nice ridge at the edge of your piece. Using a long length of your yarn and your tapestry needle, stitch edging in place. Repeat on other end. And once your hems are stitched, tuck in ends, and, if desired, block!
