portobello cowl version 2.0 {knit kit}


Introducing Portobello Cowl V2.0 knit kit! Like the original Portobello Cowl, this cowl is constructed the exact same way: knit flat on the bias in garter stitch with a two row repeat changing colors to make a graphic look. The Portobello Cowl looks best with two high contrasting colors accompanied with a "splash." Choose soft colors to create calm, choose fearless colors to be bold, choose a bright or variegated color to create interest!
