“Marlisle” is an original pattern by Joni Coniglio for Biscotte Yarns ♥ A double-layer cowl knitted with the "Marlisle" technique and our soft MERINO WORSTED yarn.

This cowl is worked in the round. The front of the cowl is worked in the Marlisle Technique using two colors, then the lining of the cowl is knitted in Stockinette stitch using only one of the two colors. The lining stitches are grafted to the cast-on stitches to finish the cowl.
