I am so happy to share a pattern for easy color work cowl with you! I have altered and made up quite a few patterns over the years. This particular cowl was created because some people are intimidated by color work.
You’ll need two contrasting colors of worsted weight yarn and size 9 and 7 16” circular needles. Each color stripe is only a few stitches, so there is no need to deal with long strands of yarn on the wrong side of the pattern. Mosaic design is easy to memorize. It doesn’t require a big commitment -it’s a pretty quick knit. You can customize the size easily by changing the number of repeats.
If you’ll need help at any point, please send me a message on I look forward to knitting with you!
