This cowl applies the technique of mosaic knitting to bulky yarn and large needles for a quick and satisfying project. No previous experience with mosaic knitting is needed as the pattern includes all necessary instructions for the technique. As mosaic knitting involves using only one colour at a time, no stranding of yarns is needed.

It is worked flat in 8 different mosaic panels and the short ends are grafted together. A reverse stockinette border is added along the long edges. You can choose between a short neckwarmer style and a long version (shown here) or decide on your own size.

The 8 original mosaic charts can also be used for a variety of other larger projects such as shawls and afghans using any suitable yarn.

Yarn usage: Valley Yarns Superwash Bulky (100% Extra Fine Merino; 109 yards 99.7 meters/100 grams); Color A (07, Blue Mist), Color B (21, Gold) and Color C (04, Rust): one ball each
