A cozy cowl inspired by the beautiful colorful gradients created every day in the Sierra Nevada skies. The cowl is worked in the round as a long tube, using linen stitch to knit four colors and create a gradient. Once complete, the ends are joined together to form your cowl. Wear on your next adventure under the big blue sky.

The Sierra Skies Cowl is available to purchase on Ravelry, LoveCrafts, and in my Etsy Shop!

Pattern Notes: The cowl is worked in the round as a long tube, knitting the 4 colors to create a gradient, and then blocked to dimensions. The ends are joined together to form a loop, and voila you have a cowl! There are several ways to join the ends of a knitted tube, each to the knitters personal preference. This pattern includes instructions on how to seam the cast on edge to the bound off edge, forming a neat seam. Please note that if you’d like to join two ends of your cowl together using a grafting method, you will need to use a provisional cast on method to begin.
