A Cowl is the perfect cool weather accessory, don’t you think? It’s just enough to give you a little extra warmth around the neck without all the bulk of a scarf or wrap and many of them have details such as buttons for a bit of extra interest. The Colorscape Cowl falls into this category. It’s simple and fun to work up and it has a nice “collar like” styling that is comfortable and looks sophisticated.
The texture in this cowl is achieved with a simple two row repeat that I’m just loving and the colorwork is all courtesy of the yarn! I used Red Heart Colorscape Yarn in the color Bangkok and I love the color transitions. I really enjoyed this yarn. It’s a #4 worsted acrylic, but it worked up more like a light bulky. The specs call for a 5.5 mm hook, but I went with something bigger for a bit more drape and softness.
Red Heart has a nice selection of new yarns this season.
