Hi Folks!

Thanks for checking out the Resolve Cowl! This pattern is a composition of unconventional variations on simple techniques that will produce a gradual fade between two colors with some super satisfying, uniform 1-by-1 ribbing at either end. It comes in two formats: a lighter, fingering-weight cowl and a heavier, sport-weight cowl. Please note that the notes above refer to the fingering-weight format. The information for the sport-weight version of the cowl can be found below.

Disclaimer: This may look like a TV-knitting pattern; however, there are some parts where you will have to pay close attention to your knitting.
