This cowl came about as a way to show off the glorious contrasts that occur when you pair colours from opposite sides of the colour wheel.

The pattern is worked in the round, using one colour at a time, and is an ideal project for adventurous beginners and more experienced knitters alike. The cowl starts with a provisional cast-on and ends with a graft, so the seam is invisible.
