Fall in love with the Electric Love Mosaic Cowl. This chic, graphic cowl is knit with two high contrast colors in fingering weight yarn. The geometric pattern is not too lovey-dovey if you’re not into that sort of thing; and if you are, you can really have some fun with yarn colors!

This particular version was inspired by the yarn itself. The colors shown in Agave really transported me back to 80s fashion, where everything was over-the-top yet carefree. Mosaic knitting is like that for me: looks complicated but is really fun and easy to do.

The Electric Love Mosaic Cowl is an engaging pattern suitable for advanced beginners and above. The pattern can be worked either bottom-up or top-down.
