There is now a second PDF to download with this pattern. It is a helpful compilation of most frequently asked questions.

Colour pooling is used to achieve the vertical blocks of colour.

I call this the DaVinci Cowl because once you “crack the code” for the number of stitches you need to produce the colour pooling you are set to go.

The pattern will explain how to find your personal code number, uniquely yours and this technique can be applied to any yarn that has the ability to pool.You will know how to unlock the code with any needle size as well. I used a 4mm for this project but please note if your yarn is thinner sock yarn you may want to go down to a 3.5mm or even a 3mm depending on your tension. SweetGeorgia is on the thicker side.

This is a fun project and a great way to dive into the fun of colour pooling with one skein of a beautiful hand dyed yarn. Each cowl will be uniquely yours!

(The cowl will be approx. 7 to 8 inches wide and 54” long)
