A triadic color harmony is one way to describe the three contrasting colors of the “Davenport Cowl”.

You can find some fabulous color combinations from the Plucky Knitter Essentials collection found here:


The detailed yarn requirements are listed further down.
The exterior is a stranded color work motif featuring elongated “S” scrolls and intermittent diamonds reminiscent of a vintage, luxurious upholstery fabric. Two contrasting colors of worsted weight yarn are needed for this section.

The lining uses a third converse color, and is knitted with a lace weight mohair and a fingering weight held together. This formulates a surprisingly soft and lofty fabric which serves a dual purpose. It conceals long floats while generating an added layer of warmth.

The deceptively simple construction is one continuous knitted tube that is folded, hemmed and seamed using a three needle bind off. The end result is a winter accessory that’s sure to turn heads in the best possible way.
