This gorgeously soft indulgent cowl was inspired by Saul Bass’s title sequence for North by Northwest.
Which way to go? Who can be trusted?
Wear it with either side showing; it’s completely reversible (as are Thornhill’s feelings for Eve!).
Pattern is shown in Little Red Bicycle Penny Farthing Sock, Color A Basque, 1 skein & Color B Vixen, 1 skein. This yarn has been discontinued.
Recommended yarn substitutions:
Sincere Sheep Cushy Fingering, Color A Bare, 1 skein & Color B Kung Hey Fat Chow, 1 skein
Knitted Wit Cashy Wool, Color A Naked, 1 skein & Color B Black Magic, 1 skein
Yardage required reflects yardage based on total weight of cowl. Pattern requires one skein of each color. If you’d like a cowl with a larger circumference, increase in repeats of 16 sts (which works out to be about 2.25” / 5.5cm) and increase your yarn requirements proportionately.
Required Skills: Knitting in the round; stranded colorwork; kitchener stitch (grafting); provisional cast on; reading charts
