Ombra is the Italian word for “shade”, “shadow”.
This beautiful fair-isle cowl is the perfect project for people who want to knit a project that never gets boring.

You can also use the simple 4-stitch pattern for any project to add a gradual transition between two colors.

The finished (blocked) size is about 22” around. & 10.5” tall.

Notes about size
I’ve got some feedback on the cowl being too narrow and long. The above size is what I intended it to be; snug around the neck and long enough to stay high when draped. Please check the above size against your neck and decide if you need to add repeats/remove rows.
