This cowl offers serious drama with a simple construction. Just cast on and work the Helix colorwork pattern in the round, bind off, and sew the ends together. Since it’s worked as a tube, there is no wrong side! Use high-contrast sock yarn colors for an eye-catching look or try wooly neutrals for a more natural feel.

Fingering weight yarn (#1 Super Fine) in 2 colors:
325 yd (298 m) Main Color
