Speckle Smash Cowl

The Speckle Smash Cowl uses beginner friendly techniques and materials to achieve a really gratifying and customizable piece in a snap! An enjoyable knit, this design looks smashing on literally EVERY BODY. And just like its sister, the “Grunge Fade Cowl”, this pattern is great for mini skeins and a perfect stashbuster – I hope you love it!

Grunge Fade Cowl

This pattern uses Marl and Fade techniques together to achieve an amazingly wearable cowl. Two strands of different colored fingering yarn are held together throughout to achieve the marled effect. At the same time, colors are switched out to create the fade. A fun and modern design that looks great on anybody - great for mini skeins and a perfect stashbuster! 

Shown in:  Grunge Fade Mini Set in Super Singles, held with a full skein of Super Single fingering in color 'Distortion'
