This handsome cowl in three sizes (S/M/L) is composed with a dead-simple stitch pattern that works up into a sophisticated, reversible fabric. Bright pops of color against a rich, earthy background in the sample version result from mixing a highly variegated hand-dyed yarn with a dark, contrasting solid; a more subtle fabric can be achieved with two solids that are closer in tone. This project is a great way to use yarns of differing characteristics as well; try pairing a springy, wooly type with a slippery, shiny type to create a glimmering fabric with a bit more drape. Whatever the yarn choices, this cowl makes for wonderfully effortless summer travel knitting with wearable, giftable potential.
