Seneca Siren is quite an addictive knit. The process of fading from one color to the next keeps it fun and the colorwork charts are easy to memorize. Perfect for knit night! This cowl is on the slightly larger size (using around 50 g of each color) but if you are stash diving and don’t have quite enough yarn, you could easily cast on less stitches and make it a little smaller around. The sample is knit in very vibrant colors, but it would be just as beautiful in more muted colors. You could even use just 2 colors instead of 3!
