Knit yourself a gorgeous mosaic cowl and try to stop at just one. A fun introduction to mosaic knitting, this really is so much simpler than it looks. Unlike stranded colourwork, only one colour is worked per round, and stitches are slipped to create texture and pattern. Take it further by playing with colour in your project. This is a fun way to use up those small yarn leftovers and explore your own creativity, then whip up another to gift someone special. The Kentia Cowl works up quickly and is finished off with i-cord edging and a neat i-cord seam transforming it to a tube.

Pattern includes both charted and written instructions.
