Electrify your look with a bold colorwork cowl! Elektrocute features a fun graphic pattern that shifts from one design to the next. Gradient transitions, lightening bolts and zig zags abound! Knit in the round and grafted together at the end, this cowl is doubly warm and cozy to keep you charged no matter what the weather. Available in two sizes--a close-fitting cowl and a generously long version that can also be worn doubled. Each size takes less than two full skeins of Madelinetosh Pashmina, one in each color.

Note: You may need to go down a needle size on the plain stockinette portion of the chart if your gauge changes noticeably between stockinette st and the stranded chart pattern.
