The Tesselation Game cowl provides a chance to play with colors and mosaic patterns. Featuring deceptively simple slipped-stitch colorwork (you only work one color at a time) and funky color combinations you choose yourself, this project will keep you entertained while it zips along in soothing garter stitch. Yarn ends are cleverly hidden in the i-cord edging that is worked at the same time as the body of the cowl.
The cowl is worked flat in garter stitch. On every second row, an increase and a decrease are made so the fabric comes out diagonally, giving an extra dimension to the pattern. Two sizes are featured here: A loop that goes once around the neck, and one that gives you a longer version to wrap around the neck twice.
