Kitta is a crochet cowl worked in the round with the RS always facing up. The main stitch pattern only uses two of the most basic crochet stitches: double crochet and chains. You will alternate two colors at a time, but use only one color in each round.

The working process is easy, yet interesting; it is fascinating to watch the color changes and see the diamonds take shape.

The pattern includes an empty grid to colorize and create your own unique design.
