Do you have a favorite gradient set of mini skeins? Maybe a gorgeous set of mini skeins in coordinating colors? Even yarn leftovers will be celebrated in this simple cowl pattern. This pattern is available on Ravelry or you can buy a copy at the Fiber Expo next weekend in Ann Arbor, MI. I will have the turquoise gradient set shown in the photo as well as a peach gradient set.
This cowl is long enough to wear doubled up or down to showcase the stripes. You can also modify it by casting on fewer stitches and then you can knit more stripes as your cowl grows taller.
Yardage: one full skein of contrasting fingering yarn (about 400 yds) and a set of five mini skeins of fingering yarn. Pattern will use about 51 yds/11 grams from each mini skein.
