This cozy cowl in two sizes (petite/tall) is encircled by large leafy motifs drawn straight from the kale patch. This stranded colorwork project takes advantage of a deep, nearly solid foreground color to create distinct shapes with highlights in brighter tones. A tweed yarn for the background shade imparts a woodcut effect to the whole composition. Use soft, lofty yarns that will bloom easily for a final result with a consistent surface.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
