Polka Dance is a fun, fast knit cowl that incorporates seed stitch and color changes to create an eye-catching, textured cowl.
Materials Needed -
Main Color - 90 yds / 82 m (128 yds / 117 m) Bulky weight yarn
Contrast Color - 50 yds / 46 m (70 yds / 64 m) Bulky weight yarn or 100 yds / 91 m (140 yds / 128 m) Worsted - held double.
Notes and Tips -
For your main color, I recommend a bulky yarn that is solid or semi-solid. The contrasting color can be anything from solids to gradients to speckles! Go wild with it if you like! For the contrasting yarn, you can use a bulky yarn or worsted weight held double to create a bulky yarn.
