It’s time to pick a pop of color for your new cowl. Using just FOUR MINI SKEINS, the Pick A Pop cowl was designed for color play. This pattern combines color and texture to create a project that is truly joyful (and incredibly speedy) to knit. As you switch from eyelet to broken ribbing to faux cables (that’s right, they’re aren’t any actual cables in this pattern), you will be shocked at how quickly this cowl flies off the needles.

Worked SEAMLESSLY from the top down, it knits up quickly (like any good cowl should), but wears like a hassle-free shawl. Unlike traditional tube cowls that rumple into a pile of knitting around your neck, this shawl-shaped construction lets your knitting shine by creating a triangular front and shortened back. The shape is wonderful, wearable, and just plain fun to knit.

This Cowl Includes:

  • Top-Down, Seamless Construction
  • Shawl-Shaped Wearability
  • Simple, Fun, Textured Stitches
  • Charts & Written Instructions
  • Endless Stash-Busting Opportunities
  • A Coloring Page!
