This stranded colorwork cowl features a repeating geometric pattern framed by hemmed edges. It begins with a provisional cast on and ends with grafting live stitches to the knit fabric. A photo tutorial is included in the pattern for the latter.

To knit this pattern, you need to know how to:

  • do and undo a provisional cast on and
  • read and work from a colorwork chart.

This cowl will use less than 50 g each of the two colors used, and a light fingering weight yarn is recommended. A yarn that is intended for use in stranded colorwork may work best, as a true sock yarn may be too dense; choose yarns that will give your knit fabric enough drape.
