A colorblocked cowl or scarf inspired by the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. There is no intarsia - just picking up stitches from slipped stitch edges. A coloring page is included :)

โ€ข Slipping stitches
โ€ข Picking up stitches from slipped-stitch edges (see tutorial)

โ€ข Cowl - 8.5โ€ x 58โ€ (circumference)

The cowl and scarf are knit on the same size needles with different weights of yarn. The cowl is meant to be more drapey, while the scarf is meant to have more body.

Scarf gauge is 20 stitches/40 rows in garter stitch on US 5/3.75 mm.
