Bright latices of color weave through this gorgeous cowl, tracing a diamond pattern that cheerfully blurs the line between traditional and modern. Nerine is knit in the round then folded in half to make a seamless, double-sided cowl with a thick and cozy fabric, and the easy-to-memorize pattern repeats are a good introduction to stranded color work.
