As I was working on my third Off-Kilter Shawlette, I found myself dreaming of a cowl with the same characteristics. The dirty green and deep grey of these two colors in my stash seemed a perfect match, and the pattern turned out just as I had envisioned. If you’re a bit nervous about working short rows in the round, don’t be. It’s really not that bad :)

575 yards total. color A: 300, color B: 275. I used Blue Moon Fiber Arts Yaksi Fingering, Pond Scum (color A) & Grawk (color B).

Skill level
Advanced beginner (short rows, knitting in the round, short rows in the round, yarn over stitches).
