The great thing about investing in stranded color work is the nice payoff at the end—a soft, cushy fabric that is so cozy, you won’t want to leave the house without it. While a bit complex, this design—worked completely in the round—is flexible for those who like to experiment. Pattern includes a chart for the color layout as shown, as well as a chart with a blank background for working the cowl in just two colors or in a unique colorway if desired.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.

Sample is shown here in Bare Naked Wools Confection Sport, with Dark Chocolate/MC, Cookies and Cream/CC1, Nougat/CC2, and White Chocolate/CC3

Kit available for cowl as shown; add an optional cashmere lining as shown in the cashmere linings blog post (lining instructions not included in pattern)
