The Design

"A perfect intro to stranded colorwork."

Searching for a small project to ease you into stranded colorwork? This cowl—a free pattern—is perfect! A simple one-by-one repeat in two high-contrast colors helps to get you used to alternating strands of yarn, while producing a striking, checker-like fabric. With one-color ribbing at each edge, and sized just right to keep your neck warm, you’ll have a cozy colorwork cowl in no time.

We knit the Simple Colorwork Cowl in Blue Sky Fibers Eco Cashmere—a DK-weight blend of half recycled and half virgin cashmere. With lush, lived-in softness, Eco-Cashmere knits up into a cozy fabric with lots of drape. And its color palette of soft natural shades with a few bright pops is so fun to play with!
