The deep colours used in this cowl create a moody feeling, expressing perfectly how many of us feel after several months of a cold dark winter. Choose any three colours of worsted weight yarn for your Moody Cowl to express your winter feelings. The slipped stitch colourwork pattern is easy to work. The slipped stitches create a dense fabric and the yarn carried along the inside adds extra thickness making it cozy and warm. This cowl is worked in the round from the bottom up.
