This cowl was created to mimic the movement and layering of the ocean; The slight waves are reminiscent of the marks left by the ebb and flow of water, and the embellishments are a picture of the organic growth of coral at the ocean bottom.

Will you knit the cowl with or without the embellishments? When adding your embellishments, do they fold back and forth across the base of your cowl? Do they swirl up one side? Do they follow the waves already established, keeping the movement going instead of breaking it up?

I hope this knit brings you joy and helps you express your inner creativity.

Happy Knitting!

Kits are available in my etsy shop HERE. I am happy to send you a Ravelry copy of my pattern if you make a note in your kit purchase.

Yarn:
Holly and Ivy Dyeworks, Ivy Sock (463yds/100g fingering weight, 75% superwash merino/25% nylon)

Color B: “Punchy Papaya” 1 skein

Notions:
10 stitch markers

(Optional: 1 or more removable stitch markers for embellishment)

Note:
The pattern will be worked in the round in two short row sections. When the first short row section has been completed, the yarn will be broken, stitches (and stitch markers!) will be slipped, and the second section will be started from the opposite side. The optional embellishment will be added after edges are grafted or sewn together and all ends have been woven in from the first two sections.
