This simple, cozy cowl makes the most of fabulously dyed fingering weight yarn. It is completely reversible and surprisingly easy to knit! Use Gauge Dyeworks’ Blue Light colourway, which can be divided into two skeins for coordinated colour perfection, or choose your own adventure with two colours of any fingering weight yarn.

60cm(24in) circumference, 35cm(14in) tall.

Stitch gauge measured by the number of vertical ribs of “V” shaped knit stitches; row gauge by the number of stacked knit “V”s. Measured after blocking, with ribs slightly opened. 10.5 ribs and 24 rows per 10cm(4in), knit in the round.
