This dramatic colourwork cowl features a mesmerising pattern of flickering flames. It’s knit in the round with live stitches grafted to provisionally cast-on stitches, so there’s no wrong side — only a cosy-soft fabric to keep you toasty indoors and out. Designed to showcase a variegated or speckled contrast yarn against a background of a solid colour, Flames is perfect for those special skeins of sock yarn!
