I’ve always loved neon yellow, especially teamed up with
darker shades and neutrals. This yarn leapt out at me
from its home on a knitting shop shelf and I knew that I
had to have it. As the colour looked great with indigo, it
was destined to become a textured cowl that I could wear
with my favourite denim jacket. I chose an open mesh
stitch with a three row repeat, so the fabric would look the
same on both sides. A simple moebius twist makes the
cowl sit more attractively around the neck, and worked at
a length that can be worn as is, or wrapped around once
for extra warmth.

Note:** Cowl is worked flat - knitter can chose to include moebius twist or leave untwisted. Can also be worked longer to wear as a scarf.*
