Drip Glaze Cowl Knitting Pattern


product options:

Use your softest yarn for this cozy neck-warmer. Seamlessly knitted from the top down, this dickey incorporates three fingering- or sport-weight yarns. Use a hand-dyed yarn for the center contrast color (CC1) and let those little speckles of color shine. It reminds me of the way pottery glazes drip and shimmer.
