I can't wait for my next LYS visit in order to purchase your book "Up Down, All-Around Stitch Dictionary". This tutorial is inspiring me to stash dive and swatch for some Christmas gifts!

Great tutorial. Looks like the elapsed time happened at the beach. :-)

I just bought "Up,Down, All-Around Stitch Dictionary". I LOVE it!!! Thank you so much for writing this book Wendy. I love knitting top down, in the round and have spent hours converting patterns in the past. Thank you so much for all your hard work.
I will be spreading the word about how great your book is :-)

I've made a bunch of cowls and infinity scarves and I don't knit any in the round. I simply knit a scarf and sew the ends together. This gives me total freedom to use just about any stitch pattern for a cowl or infinity scarf. No need to search for or convert stitch patterns to "in the round". But then, I'm a lever-style knitter so back and forth knitting is fast and easy for me.

I've done cowls where I've knit the pattern vertically, but sometimes I knit the stitch pattern horizontally (on a humongous number of stitches; sewing the "sides" together). I never bother with provisional cast ons.

After blocking the seams look great. They're easy to do because your just joining the same number of stitches or rows so no complicated fitting needed, just one-to-one seaming.

Boy are you tempting me. I love the DIY designing aspect of this.

I appreciate your explanation of how to make a cowl
Involving a favorite stitch pattern.
Simple enough that casting on is a joy
