A sampler of some of some great stitch patterns allow the colors to shine in a subtly shaded pattern, although two colors would be equally effective. Pyukkleen is knit using stranded color work in Aran weight yarn creates a fabulously warm fabric with plenty of body that means the loose cowl can stand up to protect your nose from the wind or be pulled down into attractive gathers. Pyukkleen is an excellent first stranded color work pattern with its geometric patterns, short floats and lack of steeking.
