The 2-Color Sampler Cowl is the perfect piece for using up leftover bits of yarn from previous projects. Or, maybe you have a few single skeins of luxury yarns or precious handspun. Try your hands at new and interesting crochet stitches on a small project and use up those scraps, while at the same time mixing different stitch patterns to make this fun and textured cowl. What a perfect combination?

  • This cowl is a great stash buster that is easily adjusted to any price point. Use whatever leftover yarn you have in your stash from previous projects, your precious luxury yarn, or handspun if you are a spinner. Make it YOU!

The cowl is worked in the round using two colors and changing stitch patterns to create an interesting textured piece. With each color change, the stitch pattern changes. The cowl begins with ribbing using post stitches, then transitions to stripes, and another small textured stitch. Plain double crochet stitches are worked followed by a lace pattern. The cowl is finished with post stitches similar to the beginning.
