This is a hexagon stitch cowl combining 3 different yarns. It is an invitation to create combinations of farm yarns with luxurious yarns in order to soften the farm and highlight both the incredible hand of farm yarns and the incredible softness of luxury fibers. The stitch pattern is very easy creating a “hexagon” by simply slipping stitches between blocks of color. The color and texture combinations are endless!
