Repeat row two until entire piece measures 28 inches from the beginning or until desired length. Be sure to end on a different color than when you first began, so there is a continuous stripe sequence around the entire cowl.
Weave in any ends that remain and you're ready to assemble!
Tip: When making striped pieces, it is helpful to crochet in the ends as you go. Click below for a photo/video tutorial to learn how:

Finishing & Assembly:
Match up the edges. The chevrons will line up kind of like a puzzle. You can whip stitch the ends together or crochet them together. I found that I had the most control when I laid everything flat and whip stitched the edges with a matching piece of yarn and a tapestry needle.
