Marilyn's Cowl and Hat is a timeless accessory, as it beautifully pairs form with function. The subtlety of the colors changing is achieved by holding multiple strands of the gradient together. The resulting texture yields both an effortless drape and an inimitable warmth! The cowl is meant to be worn wrapped around the neck twice to ward off chilly breezes and allow the ombré effect of the gradient draw the eye.
The cowl and hat were not only designed to allow the luxurious yarns shine, but also to be accessible to knitters of all levels. It is a dream project for a beginner looking to develop core skills. More experienced knitters will find an easy flow to the project and that their interest is held as the color shift begins to unfold.
