Higel Faux Colorwork Cowl DOWNLOAD
If you like the look of colorwork, but aren’t keen on charts and fair isle knitting, this is the pattern for you! Thanks to slipped stitches, you can achieve the same aesthetic as if you carried two colors at once. There is no chart for this pattern, because it really isn’t necessary. The simple six row repeat does all the work. Arbor is a wonderful yarn for colorwork. It has a lovely smooth texture and the perfect amount of bounce.
