The stitch pattern of this cowl brings to mind the fragments of a kaleidoscope. The perfect project to showcase a highly variegated, colorful yarn along side a more subtle solid yarn. This cowl uses 200 yards of a main color and 125 yards of a contrasting color to create a lovely textured effect. A variegated yarn looks lovely as the contrasting color, but two solid colors would also work nicely. Includes a photo tutorial of the bubble stitch, which is created through simple dropped stitches, and notes to modify the length and width of the cowl.

I've always loved to create. After becoming a mom, my creations have taken a new direction. My passion for color and love of nature that used to develop into paintings has transformed into a more functional, and less messy, form....fiber. Inspired by my loved ones, I now design and create little treasures to make life a tad more colorful and interesting. If you want to know more, check out my website at
