A lighter weight cowl inspired by California’s majestic Ahwahnee Lodge in Yosemite National Park. Simple geometric elements nod to the native and vintage roots of this treasured place. This cowl is a great way to showcase your favorite indie dyed yarn. Easy colorwork done with slipped stitches, so you don’t have to laboriously switch colors, and color changes don’t require breaks in yarn, so there’s no extra ends to weave in! If you can knit, purl and slip a stitch, this pattern is a breeze!
