Classic, chic Houndstooth is always in, and worked in smooshy luxurious cashmere makes it your to go accessory this fall season!
This cowl uses a mosaic technique with only one color worked per round to achieve a colorwork look without the fuss of floats. Seamless MC Escher like transition between the two colors gives it an extra pizzaz and almost a surreal feel. The cowl is worked seamlessly in round.
I know I am a bit biased, but if you are looking for a special project for your cashmere, this is it! The cowl comes in two sizes, so choose what you prefer best - a longer narrower tube or a slouchier shorter version!
The pattern is both written and charted.
