Using worsted weight yarn, the cowl makes for a very quick knit – just right for gift-giving. The loop does double-duty as a scarf or, wrapped twice, a warm and cozy cowl.

You can let your imagination run wild with any color combinations you like. I especially love using hand-dyed yarns for this pattern. With beautifully saturated shades, nearly-solid colors lend richness to the pieces. Or use yarns with many colors for a livelier look. I love variegated yarn with loads of bright colors, but I don’t always know what to do with them. The openwork stitch pattern lends itself perfectly to showing off all the different shades.

Both the cowl and loop call for 1 skein in the MC for the center stitch pattern and 1 skein in the CC for the stripes.

Additional Gauge: 18 sts/24 rounds = 4” in the Openwork Stitch pattern, worked in the round.
