  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This fingering weight cowl is knit in the round and then seamed together to create a reversible tube. One main color is featured throughout all the garter stitch stripes. Eight contrast colors are used for painting the waves in stockinette stitch. This easy to knit cowl beautifully showcases mini skeins or leftover bits of fingering weight yarn.
