’Fair Isle Friday’ postings on Instagram and a resolution to add colorwork to my knitting (and some stash sorting) led me to design this cowl pattern. The softness of the worsted merino is multiplied by the squishy-ness of the stranding.
A simple Fair Isle Heart motif is repeated, in graduated neutrals to a pop of color, in this sweet & soft cowl.
