The stitch pattern of this cowl brings to mind the fragments of a kaleidoscope. The perfect project to showcase a highly variegated, colorful yarn along side a more subtle solid yarn.

This cowl uses 200 yards of a main color and 125 yards of a contrasting color to create a lovely textured effect. A variegated yarn looks lovely as the contrasting color, but two solid colors would also work nicely.

Includes a photo tutorial of the bubble stitch, which is created through simple dropped stitches, and notes to modify the length and width of the cowl.
