We know what you are looking for right this minute: something FAST to knit, bright and colourful, and crazy easy without being boring.
Our brand new, hot-off-the-presses Splash cowl pattern, just in time for that “oh snap!” moment where you realize you totally forgot to knit your someone-special something! Colour takes center stage with five shades worked over a striped fabric of garter stitch and scattered eyelets. It’s gorgeous and workable in sooo many colour palette options. The best part, though, is that the two-stranded fingering weight construction whips up in the blink of an eye.
The cowl is worked flat, with yarn held double, and then the sides are seamed in finishing. The colours are worked in this order: Mango Ice (Colour A), Fauna (Colour B), Anthem (Colour C), Windswept (Colour D), and Seedling (Colour E). You can easily work this cowl in one colour by ignoring the colour change notes.
