June Cashmere DK is perfect for graphic colorwork knitting.The design reflects the use of positive and negative space that is seen in traditional Kyrgyz feltwork, known as Shyrdak. Warm without being bulky, colorwork cashmere makes a perfect three-season accessory.

Note
Only a small amount was used from the second skein of Aegean for the cowl. If making both the cowl and the matching mitts, 2 skeins per color will be enough yarn.
