The Bonfire Cowl was designed as a way to use up scrap yarn. The chevron pattern was inspired by Victorian era flame stitch textiles and bargello motifs. The pattern uses 2 alternating magic balls and is a great way to use up scraps. This method softens the breaks between each color and blends the hues together. It is worked circularly in 2 directions so there’s never any purling.

This pattern is best suited for someone who has basic knowledge of pattern reading, circular knitting, increases, and decreases. The pattern contains a photo tutorial of the magic knot and sewn bind off.
