Named after a valley in the Himalayas, the Juniper Moon Nubra cowl and fingerless mitts feature a simple colorwork section amid a stockinette field. This would be a great introduction to colorwork, as the colorwork section is only a small portion of the finished pattern.

Yarn: MC: 2 balls Juniper Moon Farm Tenzing in color # 03; CC: 1 ball Juniper Moon Farm Tenzing in color #09
