The show-stopping Bridgetown Cowl is characterized by movement, color, and grace. This is the perfect pattern for that special skein of speckled or variegated yarn!

Make the two-color cowl for a color block effect or the four-color cowl for a stacked effect. As an added bonus, only one color is worked at a time.

We are having a knit-a-long (with prizes, of course) in the Knit Equals Joy group. Come join us!

Skills Needed: Slipping stitches. A chart is included for the slipped stitch pattern repeat, but you will need to use the written instructions as well.

Use yarn with low to moderate twist, such as a single-ply yarn. The slipped stitch pattern works best with yarn that has some give and will relax in blocking.
• Use variegated or speckled yarn as the Background Color (BC).
• Use solid or tonal yarn for the Contrasting Color (CC) or Colors A, B, and C.

Background Color (BC): 1 skein Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light (Fingering, 100% Merino, 420 yds/100 g) in Beautiful Liar. If substituting yarn, 190 yds (174 m)fingering weight yarn.

Contrasting Color (CC): 1 skein Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light (Fingering, 100% Merino, 420 yds/100 g) in Coquette Deux. If substituting yarn, 145 yds (133 m) fingering weight yarn.
