A thick and comforting stranded cowl designed to match the Little Orme Mitts
. The palest green used here is Edamame which is slightly darker than the palest green in the mitts pattern (Celadon Heather).Please note the colourwork pattern is presented as a chart only - it is not written out line by line.
Worked sideways in the round from a provisional cast-on, it has an invisible graft to join the two ends.
If you don’t want to graft there’s an option for that.
If you don’t want to graft OR use a provisional cast-on, there’s an option for that too!
Size variation given for cowl to be half as tall but twice as long - uses the same amount of yarn.
