My BKF (best knitting friend) asked me to create a simple colorwork pattern for her to try her hand at alternating colors. She wanted something to cover her ears in lieu of a hat. After playing around with graph paper on a few different knit nights we settled on this pattern. The yarn is never carried more than 2 sts, making this a very easy pattern for learning to tension colorwork. Easy to size large/small, short/tall, I sized it as a cowl. Vivere is latin for 'to live' and is the root of the English 'vivid'. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit simple stranded colorwork GAUGE 24.5 stitches = 4 inches in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 22" as written, easily sizable larger or smaller

Supplies Needed

  • US5/3.75mm 24" circular needle
