When it comes to knitting with color, stripes are my go-to. They’re classic, they’re easy to wear, and they’re a foolproof way to add fun and interesting colors to your projects. This cowl is perfect for working with minis, but if you’re a stash-lover like me, little bits of leftover fingering weight yarn will be perfect for your contrasting stripes.
