Gather a colorful collection of DK weight yarns to create this easy to knit bricks cowl. The stripes and slipped stitches are knit in the round as the bricks increase in size to form a hooded effect. The double thick fabric is a super cozy layer for autumn and winter. Choose a main color to frame all of the contrasting brick color pops. DK weight yarn is recommended, but you could also hold fingering weight yarn double.
