Picots at Play is a dk-weight cowl that knits up into a whole lot of squishy goodness in Marianated Yarns’ Playtime DK. The cowl consists of a simple knit-two- purl-two ribbing followed by rounds of an addictive picot pattern that alternates across the circumference of the cowl. It was knit using one skein of Playtime DK coupled with one Jujubee DK Gradient Set. You may also work the cowl using two skeins of dk weight yarn or you may use two contrasting gradient sets. The cowl is also a great canvas for using up all those partial skeins of dk.
