Plaid & Polka Dots Cowl
Do you have some beautiful hand-dyed yarns that you are yearning to use? The Plaid & Polka Dots Cowl uses 4 colors. The main color will serve as the background to show off the 3 contrasting colors. The Plaid & Polka Dot Cowl is the perfect pattern for your treasured hand- dyed yarns!
Plaid & Polka Dots is worked in the round, beginning with a provisional cast on. Half of the cowl is worked in the plaid motif, then half is worked in the polka dot motif. Once both halves are worked, the provisional cast on is removed, and the live stitches are transferred to the second circular needle. These stitches are grafted to the live stitches on the working needle using the Kitchener Stitch.
