Marilyn’s Cowl is a timeless accessory, as it beautifully pairs form with function. The cowl is made holding multiple strands of Marianated Yarn while knitting: two strands of Ava lace are combined with one strand of Aerie mohair. And the subtlety of the colors changing is achieved by holding two strands of the gradient together. The resulting texture yields both an effortless drape and an inimitable warmth! The cowl is meant to be worn wrapped around the neck twice to ward off chilly breezes and allow the ombré effect of the gradient draw the eye.

This cowl was not only designed to allow the luxurious yarns shine, but also to be accessible to knitters of all levels. The only skills required are the ability to cast on, knit, purl and bind off! It is a dream project for a beginner looking to develop core skills. More experienced knitters will find an easy flow to the project and that their interest is held as the color shift begins to unfold.
