Knitting Pattern – Cartecay Cowl

Stripes, color, and texture are combined for this unique and modern cowl. It is named after the Cartecay River in Ellijay, GA, where you may kayak on the rapids or peacefully float downstream on a tube. The colorwork pattern is reminiscent of sand ripples found on the river banks.

The cowl is knit in one piece and folded in on itself to hide the stranded knitting.

Both written instructions and charts are provided.
