Once again I find myself inspired by the beauty of Malabrigo yarns. This time, the colors of nature and the softness of naturally dyed yarn drew me to our exclusive and limited edition Malabrigo yarn- Dos. The Uno, DOS, Tres Cowl uses three different colors from Dos’ soft color palette and a simple stitch pattern to create a beautiful and lightweight cowl that is perfect for warmer weather. Super soft baby merino wool is light and airy next to skin, and makes for an everyday garment that you’ll want to wear again and again. I love stripes and just couldn’t resist knitting them in a stunning range of neutrals that will go with everything in my wardrobe--and probably your too! Choose any three of your favorites for a simple and classic cowl you can wear year round!

Colors used are:
#706 Melon
#714 Pimienta
#719 Natural

Finished Measurements:
11” tall x 23” circumference

The size of this cowl is easily customizable. I knit mine until it measured 10” and then blocked the heck out of it. You could also cast on fewer stitches (in multiples of 2) to create a slightly snugger fit. There is plenty of yarn left that you could easily make it longer if you prefer for more of a snood length or just keep knitting until the yarn runs out!
