This funnel-shaped cowl is the perfect way to warm your neck and a bit of your shoulders too!
Worked in a simple stranded pattern that lets you move easily from dark to light, creating your very own subtle ombre colorway.

Construction: Chiaro Scuro is knitted stranded in the round from the bottom up. It starts with an alternate cable cast-on to set up for a simple rib stitch, and it ends similarly with a simple rib stitch finished by an Italian sewn bind-off. Lovely cable decreases add drama to the funnel-neck shaping.

Needles: Size 5 US (3.75 mm) circular needles,
Notions: Tapestry needle, stitch markers.

Yarn : For my warm-color sample, I used 9 mini skeins (20 gm each) or Sunday Knits sport weight yarns: Angelic plum, Brigadoon: garnet, sequoia, relic, mulberry, heath, thyme, and turmeric; and Eden artisan-dyed curry.

For my cool-color sample, I used Spincycle Yarn’s Dyed in the Wool: 1 skein Lapis, 1 skein Family Jewels.

Techniques used: Alternate cable cast-on, stranded knitting, cable decreases, Italian sewn bind- off.
