    Picking colors is half the fun in this bold and graphic colorwork cowl worked in worsted weight yarn. In addition to options for either an infinity scarf or a standard cowl there are instructions for a second version in fingering weight yarn. This design is knit in the round, using a provisional cast on and Kitchener stitch grafting. The Color Swatch Cowl is an addicting knit and a great option for a knitter new to colorwork.
