Deco Fans is inspired by classic art deco wallpaper. Although the stitch pattern looks complex, it features a combination of slipped stitches and simple cabling so colors are worked one at a time.

Worked in two colors of Mecha, the slipped stitches of this pattern provides a great opportunity to pair one a semisolid colorway with one of the highly variegated or watercolor colorways that Malabrigo is known for. Knit flat, it has a button band to provide a variety of different ways to wear the cowl.
