Rainbow Loom is a fun to knit, slipped stitch cowl with a touch of lace and a pop of color. The cowl is knitted in the round with contrasting yarn colors. The different stitch patterns seamlessly transition into one another to create a beautiful combination of texture and lace. Using the same basic pattern you can make this cowl your own by choosing how many colors to use, when to use them and by changing the lace/slipped stitch layout. One pattern gives you endless possibilities to explore and knit. There are 4 different looks that can be achieved by simply changing how you wear your cowl, like wearing it as knitted or folded in half.
Both, written and charted instructions are included.
