Cut yarn leaving 50-60 cm tail. Now we are going to finish the cowl by using method of horizontal invisible seam. This method can be also used for sewing sweater, knitted jacket, etc.

Put both edges of cowl with right sides facing you. Use tapestry needle.

Working with piece that is farther away from you. First step is to insert the needle from right to left under the stitch (it reminds me a‘gull’).

9

Next step is to insert the needle into the stich of the closest piece and exactly in the center of the ‘gull’. Extract the needle in the middle of the next gull of the same closest piece.

Go back to father piece and repeat same steps.

At the end we can see an imitation of already knitted stitches.
