The show-stopping Bridgetown Cowl is characterized by movement, color, and grace. This is the perfect pattern for that special skein of speckled or variegated yarn!
Make the two-color cowl for a color block effect or the four-color cowl for a stacked effect. As an added bonus, only one color is worked at a time.
Skills Needed: Slipping stitches. A chart is included for the slipped stitch pattern repeat, but you will need to use the written instructions as well.
• Use yarn with low to moderate twist, such as a single-ply yarn. The slipped stitch pattern works best with yarn that has some give and will relax in blocking.
• Use variegated or speckled yarn as the Background Color (BC).
• Use solid or tonal yarn for the Contrasting Color (CC) or Colors A, B, and C.
