Three colours of DK weight yarns stripe up this textured cowl. The pattern is repetitive and because of the dropped stitches grows quickly. The garter st finishing that jumps over the opens ends of the twisted stitches adds a few curves to set off the stripes.

The dropped stitch pattern is called Indian Twist St. There is a step by step photo tutorial included in the pattern.

200yds of the main colour; 160 yds of each of the secondary colours. The main piece is worked flat and then seamed. The edges are picked up and then worked in the round.
