The Project

Rays of angled lines encircle this kerchief cowl. This fun knit combines stranded knitting with knit/purl stitches to create an intriguing, textured motif. After the initial section is completed, we transition from working in the round to working flat and begin decreasing each row to reach the final point of the cowl.

We are so excited to invite you to join us for this KAL adventure! Choose your favorite colorway and get the exclusive kit, and be ready to cast on February 1, 2023. Kyle will join us in our Ravelry group to answer any questions you and the others might have all month long!
