Trapezoid is a small cowl, meant for those breezy days when you just want to keep the chill off of your neck. It gets is trapezoid shape from change in number of ribbed stitches from top to bottom. The ribbed sections give it a subtle change in texture. I knit it in Classic Elite Yarns Soft Linen, but you may use any DK weight yarn. It will work in a solid or a self striping yarn. I like the linen blend because it softens as you wear it and becomes a deliciously soft hug around your neck.
