The rhythmic geometry of this colorful cowl is perfect for colorwork beginners, and fantastic for using up stash leftovers. The two versions — two-color worsted or four-color DK — are both perfect canvasses for playing with palettes. Make it boldly bright, subtly neutral, modernly monochrome, or however your heart desires. Tolt River Cowl is a quick knit, and a perfect gift for the color lover in your life.
