Compass is worked in the round from the bottom up. It begins with a long tail tubular cast on, and then a ribbing is worked. Increases are worked in the chart in accommodate the cable stitches, and once the body is complete, decreases are worked before the final ribbing. It is bound off using a tubular bind off.
The cowl is written for two sizes. Pay attention to which size you are working when knitting from the charts and work the correct number of repeats of the of honeycomb pattern accordingly.
If you prefer not to work the tubular cast on and bind off, a long tail cast on and binding off in pattern may be used in their place.
