Have you ever found yourself torn between wanting a mindless and easy project but enamored with multiple colors of gorgeous yarn which belong in some colorwork? Love Me or Weave Me will satisfy both of your cravings! This stockinette, a-line shaped cowl has a double strand of yarn woven through the stitches creating the illusion of colorwork within a very simple project! Worked from the bottom up in the springy-soft Elemental yarn from North Bay Fiber, this simple piece is embellished with an I-cord bind off and a sprinkle of fringe along the edge. You may choose to work your version in two colors like ours, or weave in a range of colors. We are sure the possibilities are endless and can’t wait to see your version!

• Cowl is worked in the round, from the bottom up.
• Any time you are changing colors between rounds, if you are carrying them up, be sure to pick the new color up from behind the old color, crossing the two colors over one another to prevent any holes.
• It is not necessary to cut yarns during pattern, simply loosely carry the non-working color up behind the work.
• Note that you do not actually knit with the CC within the cowl body pattern. The yarn is simply woven back and forth through use of slipped stitches.
