The Arwen cowl is all about knits and purls in a changing graphic pattern, making it interesting to knit. Two skeins of Malabrigo Merino Worsted in different colorways are needed for this looped cowl. It’s fully reversible, and can also be made with a single skein for a smaller, one loop cowl.

The pattern is written and charted, and has been tech edited by KTLV and test knit by jan229, susiep, Jillglove and jwisecup.
