This gender-neutral cowl and headband are inspired by Percy Jackson from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan. Mimicking bubbles and flowing water with yarn-overs and faux cables, this quick knit is easily adaptable to different sizes and yarns.
Techniques required are knitting in the round, increases (YO and KFB), decreases (K2TOG and SSK), slipping stitches, and passing slipped stitches over other stitches.
One size fits most, with instructions for increasing and decreasing circumference. As written, cowl finished size is 55 inch circumference by 8 ¼ inches wide, while headband finished size is 16 ½ inch circumference by 4 ½ inches wide.
