Almaz is a simple pattern, two color cowl with some interesting details, perfect for using stash yarn. The diamond pattern is outlined by a chevron, amplifying the colorwork design, while each side of the colorwork is buffered by two-color linen stitch for added texture. This is a great project for practicing colorwork skills and creating a cozy piece to keep the breeze off your neck. This cowl is worked in the round, in one piece. Knit with The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers very lovely Soka’pii single-ply yarn it’s soft and durable.
