Color Swatch Cowl
Color Swatch Cowl by Knitterella. Picking colors is half the fun in this bold and graphic colorwork cowl worked in worsted weight yarn. In addition to options for either an infinity scarf or a standard cowl there are instructions for a second version in fingering weight yarn. This design is knit in the round, using a provisional cast on and Kitchener stitch grafting. The Color Swatch Cowl is an addicting knit and a great option for a knitter new to colorwork.
