This pattern was originally published in collaboration with Knitted Wit to show off her 15-color sets of Gumballs (45 yards of Victory Fingering in complementary colors). There are two options: a narrower long loop, and a wider short loop.

Knitted Wit has 5 different 15-color sets. The versions shown here are Little Black Dress (long loop) and Rainbow Magic (short loop).

Size/finished measurements:
Long Loop: 5.5” tall, 33” long unbuttoned.
Short Loop: 8” tall, 27” long unbuttoned.

You will also need three 7/8” buttons. The ones on the cowls pictured are vintage buttons from Buttonhole Buttons, and, at the time this pattern was published, she had more, so contact her. She can recommend a color based on the Gumball set you’re using.

This is also a great project to use fingering-weight leftovers! You’ll need approximately 40 yards of each color.
