Simple colorwork and stockinette come together to create a fun, easy cowl perfect for your leftover DK skeins or DK minis! This pattern was inspired by creating a chart that flows seamlessly from color to color, allowing you to show off all of your favorite colors and dyers in one wearable cowl! Intended to be beginner-friendly and enjoyable, Scrap Town is the perfect way to use up all those ends from your favorite DK projects. Go wild or keep it neutral, express yourself to the fullest with Scrap Town!

This simple colorwork cowl pattern is intended to use up leftovers/scraps or mini skeins of yarn. Choose up to 10 colors of DK weight yarn, with at least 10g in each color, and at least 20g of each ribbing color.

Fingering weight held double also works wonderfully!

The pattern is written for DK weight yarn, but notes are provided to customize the cowl to use any weight yarn (as long as they’re all similar in twist and fiber). Swatching will help! Any changes to gauge, or size will result in different yardage.
