Take yourself on a knitting adventure that results in a comfortable, easy-to-wear cowl. Knit flat, the Radvent Cowl is designed to use twelve colours, either a gradient or fade yarn set. Alternately, work in randomly- ordered colours for a colour block version or keep it simple with a single colour, perhaps with a contrasting i-cord. The Radvent cowl works up quickly in DK weight yarn, or several strands held together to create the equivalent weight, and is finished off with i-cord edging and a neat i-cord seam transforms it to a tube. This is a fun stash-busting project, a great way to use up those lovely leftovers you’ve been saving.
