From a Traditional Story: ”In the beginning of the beginning, Giraffe wasn't as tall as the trees. She was more like a deer, lean and quick and no taller than a bush.'' When drought came, drying up all but the highest leaves in the trees, Giraffe and Rhino asked Man to help them reach the trees. He gave them a magic herb, but Rhino forgot to eat his, and so Giraffe ate both portions, resulting in a double long neck.   This tall cowl is worked flat and then seamed to form either a false Moebius or a traditional no-twist cowl.
