Scandi Bloom Cowl

Inspired by Scandinavian style botanical patterns and the blooms in a summer garden, this tubular cowl is knit from a provisional cast on using stranded colorwork techniques. Kitchener stitch is used to close the tube forming a mobius style cowl. I love styling this type of cowl because it’s so easy to wear and adds the perfect pop of color to your wardrobe. Grab a rich tonal for your main color and either 6 mini skeins/scraps or a single contrast color and get ready for some hygge knitting.
