If you’ve ever watched those home shows before, than you know how unpopular parquet flooring is. I have a confession… I secretly love parquet floors! The angles in combination with the many hues in hardwood make for a beautiful image with such depth and interest. This cowl features a parquet stitch pattern, which when knit with Chunky Merino, creates a lovely textured fabric that both makes the stitches pop and the overall piece drape beautifully -perfect for a long loopy cowl or a tall and narrow one. This pattern includes directions for two different sized cowls. You choice!
