Knitted Knot Cowl

While winding this bold, silky, variegated yarn into a ball, I thought it would be fun to have a cowl that highlighted small bursts of color.  A few cable cast ons, knit2togethers, purl2togethers later, this cowl looks like it was knotted together,  but is in fact knitted. Knitted Knot Cowl is a reversible, quick knit project – each knot is made up of one, two or three colors!!!  The short version uses one skein of yarn and the long version, two. This pattern is great for beginner knitters or more experienced knitters who want an easy project. No swatching required!!!
