Free knitting pattern for a super simple, easy to knit seed stitch cowl. It uses one skein of yarn, and can be knitted up in one night! I may have to learn how to do that. (point: not crochet, but I only have one yarn-y board)
If you are using a different yarn than the one I have used make sure to check your gauge before you start. Herringbone stitch knits quite a bit more dense than other stitches to you will need bigger needled and a higher stitch count.
