Alive Cowl is a Moebius cowl that uses a clever slipped stitch for a fun plaid look. Midway through the colors are inverted - this is a great project for someone who wants to try some easy color work but not yet ready for a stranded colorwork knit.

Matching hat is available here!

The pattern is fully written and there is only one color worked per round.
