The show-stopping Bridge City Cowl is characterized by movement, color, and grace.  Make the two-color cowl for a two-tone effect or the four-color cowl for a color-block effect.  As an added bonus, only one color is worked at a time. 

Bridge City is one of the nicknames for Portland, Oregon.  This stitch effect, particularly in the four-color cowl, brings to mind reflections on the Willamette River in the evening light.

Skills Needed:  Slipping stitches.
