This pattern is for the cowl but there is also a matching hat pattern that can be purchased separately.
Another simple to knit but complex looking design. No one needs to know how easy it is other than you though, especially if you knit this as a gift.
The stitches are simple because they use the mosaic stitch method of colourwork. You will be working with only one colour at a time in each round. Easy peasy even if you are new to this type of knitting.This pattern is written out in full row-by-row and does not use charts.
You can easily substitute with any worsted that will give a suitable gauge.
