Gambit is a cozy cowl with a lining you can choose to hide or show to spice up the main houndstooth pattern with motifs inspired by Prince of Wales pattern details and checkerboards.
It is the perfect challenge for colourwork beginners, whether they are retro lovers or bold graphic pattern fans!
Gambit is worked in the round from the bottom up as one long tube, then folded and grafted to create a warm lining and keep the colourwork floats safe.
Charted and written instructions are provided for all sections.

This cowl is worked in 4-ply / fingering weight yarn.
I recommend using two contrasting solid or semi-solid colours.
