This unisex neck warmer would make a great first stranded colour work project, but is a super fun knit for anyone!

Kannik is an Inuit word meaning snowflake or falling snow. Two strands of fingering weight yarn are held together throughout this design. When one strand of each colour is used, a marled effect is created that softens the transition between the bands of colour.
