Some stitch patterns simply call upon you and beg to be knitted. And some yarns do that too! With the Amphora cowl, I had two such cases, a stitch pattern and a skein, and they were made for each other. I added one variation of the stitch pattern to complete the mix, and so was the Amphora cowl born. The main focus of the cowl lies in the play of lines formed by the decreases.
Amphora is a quick knit, perfect for that lonely single skein longing in your stash. So knit it for yourself or as a gift (or one of each!) and wrap your neck in stylish comfort!
