This deeply textured and cozy cowl was designed to show off a handspun gradient yarn, flowing smoothly from one color to the next. It is framed by a lacy rib, which flows into a lace pattern which is left unblocked to accentuate the texture.

While I knit it with a 9-step gradient, it can be knit with any solid or semi-solid yarn; or gradient or self-striping yarn with long color changes.

It is a satisfying knit, and quick enough to grace the necks of all of your loved ones!
