Looking to try colorwork or just love that flowering vine as much as I do? The Enwreathed Cowl is the perfect project for both. Because knitting the cowl to an exact size isn’t necessary, this will give you a chance to try colorwork in a relaxed situation (I find I knit more tightly on small circumferences). Plus you get to work this pretty pattern. It’s a win/win.
