The show-stopping Bridge City Cowl is characterized by movement, color, and grace. This is the perfect pattern for that special skein of speckled or variegated yarn!
Make the two-color cowl for a two-tone effect or the four-color cowl for a stacked effect. As an added bonus, only one color is worked at a time.
Bridge City is one of the nicknames for Portland, Oregon. This stitch effect, particularly in the four-color cowl, brings to mind reflections in the Willamette River in the evening light.
Skills Needed: Slipping stitches. A chart is included for the slipped stitch pattern repeat, but you will need to use the written instructions as well.
Yarn: Use fingering weight yarn with low to moderate twist. For 2-color cowl, use 190 yds background color and 145 yds contrasting color. For the 4-color cowl, use 190 yds background color and 3 contrasting colors of no more than 65 yds each.
Needles: Use US size 3 - 32 in. circular needles
