A while ago I received a beautiful set of mini-skeins as a gift from a dear friend. I loved them so much, and I wanted to use them right away! But they were too fragile to knit into a pair of socks, and they were not enough to make an accessory out of just those minis…
So I decided to pair them with some neutral toned yarn that I had in my stash. Something that would bring out the colors in this beautiful speckled yarn.
The result is this super easy cowl, that I hope you will like!
You can add as many color bands as you like. You can use a gradient, or just an assorted combination of multiple colors! Just let your imagination fly.
