Knittoo Cowl by TanisKnits | A collaboration between friends Tanis Gray of TanisKnits and Samantha Hardman of Whimsical Wood Yarn Co, they each designed a stranded colorwork motif, then put them together to make this tattoo-inspired cowl. Skullflakes, a flying swallow, “knit fast die warm” text, stars, and moons dance across this cozy accessory. Each designer picked their yarn and colors. The Knittoo Cowl is worked in the round from the bottom up seamlessly. Smaller needles are used on the bottom and top garter border, while the stranded colorwork portion is worked in larger needles.
