Technicolor Mosaic Cowl

This pattern is available for C$5.99 CAD buy it now

Shhh! It’s not fairisle! The amazing “Techni-Cowl” is deceptively simple and fun to work in the mosaic knitting technique. A solid color yarn and Noro work together to fantastic technicolor effect. Try two similar shades for more a monochromatic look or two color changers for a really psychedelic knitting experience!

Knitted in the round, the Technicolor Mosaic Cowl has a fluted base that is shaped by changing to a larger needle size for the last couple of pattern repeats. Since Noro does all the color changing, this project has no finishing or multiple ends to sew in. Specific instruction is given on how to follow a simple chart, so this is a great first-time mosaic knitting project!
