The perfect cowl for special DK or worsted yarns.
The strands of yarn look like they have been inked over the top of each other. It’s ideal for semi-solid colours.
With two different shades, you can make a long cowl with a two-tone effect.
Play with complimentaries or contrasts. Wear it loose or twist it up double for extra warmth. The reverse side has an interesting texture too.
Or, for a smaller project, just one skein of a special yarn makes the perfect cosy cowl. Choose a beautiful semi-solid and make a quick gift.
Knitted in the round, they are easy-intermediate projects.
