I find the Herringbone stitch pretty interesting because it looks more like woven fabric, than knit. Some people would even say it looks crocheted! It’s only a 2 row repeat so it gets easier as you do it.
Super Bulky weight 80 to 90 yds. I chose Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick 1 skein 87 yds). New color Marble (black accent on white and grey) makes for an interesting repeat pattern for the cowl. You might also try Sandstone which has the creams and grey.
