Starburst is a worsted weight, textured cowl featuring a unique cluster stitch that looks interesting on both sides and can be knit two different ways. Showcase a graduated stripe yarn such as Twisted Fiber Art Yummy (Version A), or have fun playing with alternated solid colors for a wavy striped effect (Version B). A looser gauge is used to produce a more open and drapey fabric. This pattern is for the intermediate to advanced knitter; written instructions are used.
