Have you got two solo skeins of DK weight in your stash that could go together, but you’ve no idea what to do with them? Well wonder no more!

Truly, Madly is a simple mosaic pattern easy enough for beginners and engaging enough for the seasoned mosaic knitter. As a knit-in-the-round, (optionally) mobius cowl, all the floats are hidden inside--and the floats are never more than one stitch long so tension won’t be an issue! And with 3 different cast on/bind off options--there’s something for every comfort level. The pattern was so fast and fun to whip up. I had a blast and I hope you will too!

I know you’ve heard it before, but this is one of those project that is easy to make but stunning to wear!
