ChickenBetty Random Plaids PDF
ChickenBetty's Random Plaids is a contemporary two-color cowl adorned with a plaid pattern. The pattern illustrates an easy way to knit plaid while not having to worry about intarsia and lots of little bobbins of yarn. By adding the vertical element in the purl columns of ribbing, your crochet slip stitches lay even with the surface of the knit stitches, keeping the illusion of a single knitted piece.
