The Juego Cowl is worked flat, in a stitch pattern that just flies off the needles, and then it’s joined together in a circle. You’ll play with slipped stitches that are carried over four rows of a simple lace stitch to create this textural, mosaic-inspired fabric. If the stitch challenges you, start small with one repeat of the chart. Once you get the hang of it, cast on for the whole shebang!

Based on a stitch developed for my Juego Mystery Shawl, Juego Cowl plays with a contrasting solid color and a hand-dyed yarn with long color repeats. I’ll confess to feeding my family hummus and frozen pizza while I was knitting this design because I just had to get to the pink … Once you cast on Juego, you’ll understand!
