I live for colorwork! Nothing keeps me more interested in a project than flip flopping my way through a design that involves color changes.

If you are intrigued by knit colorwork, but want a simple pattern to start with, the Dotty Tube Cowl is for you! Worked in the round, and using a color changing yarn that does all of the heavy lifting, this simple knit will fly off your needles and will be a conversation starter every time you wear it!


For my sample, I used:
Color 1: 2 balls of We Are Knitters Cotton – colorway Natural (appx. 250 yds)
Color 2: 1 cake of Lion Brand Ferris Wheel yarn – colorway Buttercup (appx. 250 yds)

NOTE: Any DK/Light Worsted weight yarn will work, choose one solid and one self-colorchanging,or if you’re adventurous, you can
change colors on your own for each row of dots!
