Drifting one into the other, colors gently shift throughout this generously sized yet lightweight cowl. Light fingering weight yarn is held double for this color transition technique, which results in a quick and satisfying knit.

The color drift technique works best with yarns that are similar in saturation. Speckled and variegated yarns give the best effect. If using tonal yarns, try a gradient like Wonderland Yarns “Down the Rabbit Hole” or “Color Morph” series for best results.

US 8 circular needles
One size fits all: 30” around and 15.5” tall

Fingering weight yarn (Wonderland Yarns Cheshire Cat Mini Skein Pack) is held doubled throughout.
