Traditional geometric weaving patterns can translate beautifully into knitting! The technical requirements of how you use color are similar in both crafts, and can meld back and forth. Inspired by some striking items, I set out to make a (knit) cowl using strong and modern colors placed into old shapes. The result is fun and fresh!

This is a cowl, using “Armenian Colorwork”. There is a photo tutorial showing how to work Armenian style. You will need four colors of yarn.
