Gulf of Maine cowl is a worsted-weight, infinity style cowl knit in the round and featuring 3 colors in a varied striping pattern. The colors in Berroco’s Artisan are beautiful, and the three shades I picked for this pattern reminded me of the Maine gulf, natural and striking all at the same time.

This is a perfect mindless knitting pattern for those nights when you want something yummy to knit with but will take minimal brain power!
