Notes

This is the sample for amirisu issue 6.

This two-colored cowl was inspired by the colors of the sand and the clear blue-green water when ambling along the beach after a sunny day to keep your neck cozy and protect it from the fresh evening wind.
The vertical chain pattern reminds me of the anchor chain of a boat which has just landed. It is easy to memorize and though it seems to be stranded it is only knit with one color at a time in the round.

Thanks to my secret testknitters.
