“Take the next step in colorwork!”
A sweet, easy sequel to our Simple Colorwork Cowl, this free pattern helps you take the next step in stranded colorwork! The two-color motif alternates three stitches of one shade with one stitch of another for a delightful, diagonal, criss-crossing pattern. With a squishy structure and comfortable, more-close-fitting size, this cowl is super cozy and quick to knit!

We chose Wool and the Gang’s Alpachino Merino for the Three/One Colorwork Cowl. A chunky-weight blend of sustainably sourced alpaca and merino, this yarn has a gentle, poofy twist and creates a plush and cozy fabric. And with a color palette that features both playful brights and calm neutrals, there are so many fun combo options.

Approx. 24”/60cm around x 8 1/2”/22cm deep.

2 skeins Wool and the Gang Alpachino Merino (110 yds/100m each); 1 in main color (MC) and 1 in contrast color (CC). Or approx. 220 yds/201m of an equivalent chunky-weight yarn. Note: 1 skein of each color will make 2 cowls in opposite colorways.
