A picture perfect classic made modern with mosaic color-work.

Framework Cowl is an elegant harmony of structure and style designed using two contrasting shades of Lore, from The Fibre Co.

Knit in the round from the bottom up, the slightly tapered shape is achieved by simple gauge manipulation, ensuring a complimentary drape. For a more dramatic exposure, add the adjustable side ruching and make this cowl your go-to accessory for all occasions.

Mosaic color-work is easily worked using just one color per round. The pattern includes both written and charted instructions and a photo tutorial for the optional ruching.

The Fibre Co has assembled gorgeous kits for Framework. Kits include 2 skeins of LORE plus the pattern pdf! Please click here to be re-directed to their site.
