The Rise from the Ashes Cowl pays tribute to Chicago’s history of resiliency and tenacity, a dynamic city rising from the ashes of the Great Chicago Fire.

Mosaic stitches worked in the round create a grid that shifts from main color to contrast color and back again. Pair a solid with a highly contrasting tonal colorway for maximum impact. The pattern includes instructions for working with up to 5 contrast colors.

Only one color is worked at a time, making it an ideal project for the knitter who would like to explore working with multiple yarns without doing stranded colorwork.
