Pattern Description:

The Double Knit Three is a trio of cowls done up in fun prints that add a splash to any ensemble: polka dots for whimsical flair, leopard print for when you're feeling spicy, and a Southwestern-inspired geometrical pattern for more refined days. Because they are worked in the Double Knitting technique, they are reversible, thus doubling your Double Knit fun. Full instructions and colorwork charts for all three cowls are included as well as a brief introduction to Double Knitting, so this is a great way to learn the technique!
