Scandi Cowl features some of my favorite motifs, adapted from my book 150 Scandinavian Motifs. A super way to practice and explore the beauty of Scandinavian stranded knitting. Knit as a long tube in the round beginning with provisional cast on and joined with kitchener stitch after blocking to form a continuous loop.
