Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • stranded colorwork

Pattern Description:

Chevzam features dead simple colorwork that looks far more complex than it is thanks to frequent color changes and a graphic, chevron motif. The floats on the back provide a double thick layer of cozy Malabrigo Merino for the ultimate in cheery winter luxury, and the color combinations are endless!

Note: If your ribbing gauge is much larger than your colorwork gauge (which it will be for many people) you may wish to go down a needle size for the ribbing in order to prevent flaring.

ALSO: This pattern does require the knitter to work from a chart.

This cowl matches the Zam Hat!
