This cushy cowl is worked in the round. The honeycomb-shaped slipped stitch pattern makes the most of your gradient yarn and uses only one colour per row, so it’s great, even if you’re a beginner.

The pattern includes both written and charted directions for the slipped stitch pattern.

Blocking
Shetland yarn benefits from wet blocking, as this helps the yarn to bloom. To wet block, soak finished item in cold water with a little soap or alternative until thoroughly wet. Rinse out soap if needed. Squeeze out as much water from the piece as you can. Lay flat and pin out or stretch to finished measurements.
