  • Pattern contains both hat and cowl*

On the Dot is a cowl and hat set designed to delight a knitter. A clever combination of colors, cables, and slip stitches creates a unique design that looks like colorwork, but is not. This bold texture really pops against a plain fabric, but holds its own in a mix of patterns and textures, too. Its robust appearance belies the lightness of the fabric, which is knit in a lofty DK yarn for warmth without weight. Worked entirely in the round from bottom hem to top, with a stitch pattern that is nothing short of addictive, these pieces knit up quickly for immediate gratification.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement.
