A series of reversible cowls inspired by West African bogolanfini (“mud cloth”) textiles. Mix and match colors and patterns to make it your own.

  • Charts included for five different stranded motifs.
  • An excellent project for learning stranded color work.
  • Worked in the round beginning with a provisional cast-on and ending with a 3-needle bind-off.
  • May be worked in any dk, sport, or light worsted weight yarn that knits to gauge.
  • Requires approximately 210 yards / 195 meters of each color. Yardage may vary depending on options chosen.
