Skill Level: Advanced beginner – experience working stranded colorwork a definite plus

A celebration of chevrons awaits you in this cozy cowl. Work stranded colorwork, textural stitches, and stripes with three (or more!) colors of your favorite soft DK yarn.

Construction details: Cowl is worked in the round from the bottom to the top. The pattern is written in chart form as well as written out.

Finished Measurements: approximately 24.75” circumference x 14” depth

Techniques required:

3 colors (A, B, and C) of DK weight (CYCA #3) yarn, 150 yards each color.

I recommend that you use solid or semi-solid colors. To ensure contrast for the stranded colorwork or striped sections either use highly contrasted colors (yellow, blue, pink) or try to vary the value of the colors you use (one dark, one medium, one light)
