Mixing it up can be so much fun!

Create this colorful cowl with simple stranded knitting. The mixing it up is done in the round with ribbed edges and three beautiful mosaic stitch motives in 4 colors, one being the base color, creating the perfect backdrop for your colorful motifs.

No worries, it is pretty easy to do and there is even a video link to help you out with catching the floats in the back for a neater inside of your cowl. Charts are included as well.

Blocked measurements are: 10” in height and 20” in circumference.
