The buttery soft Alpaca has amazing drape which allows this beautiful accessory to pair effortlessly with just about any look. Fold it in half for a thicker shorter 2-color cowl, or wear it tall and snuggly right up under your chin and show all 3 colors.

Making this cowl is a quick and relatively mindless knit worked seamlessly in stockinette in the round. The colors blend together over a mosaic shadow, which keeps it just interesting enough to keep you from getting bored. Use natural colors like I did, or go for wilder contrasting colors, whichever you prefer!
