This brilliant project by Jesie Ostermiller is the perfect accessory for a winter coat or that glamorous winter party. This pattern is available in Knitscene Winter 2016, and is one of 4 beautiful designs by Jesie. To create the cowl, you will need to know how to do a provisional cast-on, work 2 color fair-isle (also known as stranded colorwork), and be able to graft the ends together. Any intermediate knitter should be able to complete the project.
Kit includes pattern within Knitscene Winter 2016 (while available) or pattern alone and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.
