Listado Cowl was one of the first cowls I designed. I always wanted it to be longer but to do that I knew I had to change the stitch pattern to be reversible. So this version was born! I used a brand new yummy gradient alpaca/merino sport weight yarn from Cloudborn Fibers... the color shifts happen without you doing a thing (besides knitting). This pattern can be made with a variety of yarns and it is easily adjustable based on yardage available.
This pattern/yarn combo is definitely a hit as when I bound it off my hubby “stole” it before I even had time to block it and revamp the pattern! Luckily I got it back for photos.... but he is wearing it as often as he can!
SPECIAL: If you have previously purchased the Listado Cowl from Nelkin Designs you will automatically receive a $3 discount at checkout, no need for a special code! If you haven't and purchase both patterns then you will be automatically discounted $3 at checkout.
