This is a versatile pattern that makes great use of many yarn types. Hand painted or variegated yarns can be showcased between the accent stripes. One of my testers used recycled Sari yarn and marveled at how well it worked in this pattern. Use up your 10-yard bits by making single rows of different yarns between the accent stripes. Make it manly by using a single color for the entire cowl.
The Appreciation Cowl was first made for a friend who went above and beyond to help my family in a time of need. It makes a great gift or give yourself a pat on the back and make one just for you :)
