The Design

“A little zig, a little zag.”

Get to know the ups and downs of stranded colorwork with this free pattern! The two-color chevron motif is easy to memorize and follow, and the resulting zig-zag fabric is striking. With cozy structure (and an extra touch of warmth) thanks to the hidden ‘floats’ and a more-close-fitting size, this cowl is a fun, cozy accessory.

We knit the Chevron Colorwork Cowl in two, high-contrast colors of Rowan Kid Classic—a favorite of ours for nearly ever. Kid Classic’s lambswool offers loft and resilience, while the mohair—not brushed ‘fluffy’ like many mohair yarns—adds luster, depth of color, and tonal complexity. It’s an excellent choice for a nicely insulating cowl!
