Minor update published making changes to garter tab and first colour change.

Named after the lush rolling hills of Jindivick in Victoria, this easy to wear 2-colour cowl is a simple but effective knit that makes use of the multicoloured single skeins that we all seem to have.

By varying the colours and textures (ie; gradients, self-striping, variegated, fluffy, handspun) the possibilities are endless but you will have a cowl that tucks nicely under a jacket without all the bulkiness at the back, and fits warmly around the throat.
The smaller version is suited to a child or very small adult and has slightly different shaping. Both sizes are available for download as separate files.

Commencing at the neckline on straight needles (or circulars if you prefer) and using a garter-tab you will knit back on forth to a particular point before joining in the round.

Needles and Notions
Size 4.00mm straight needles and 4.00mm circular in 60cm
Three stitch markers - one being a different colour
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
