There’s nothing more magical and eye catching than a concert of colors underneath the glow of a black light. This captivating cowl gives an incredible performance both on the needles and off.

The cowl is worked in the round using slip-stitch Mosaic knitting. To keep the texture of the chevron crisp and the backdrops bold, the mosaic shifts from stockinette to garter stitch and back again.

Mesmerizing, dramatic, and angular. Go ahead, knit yourself a showstopper.
