Ansh Cowl is a versatile accessory that can live in your wardrobe and can easily be thrown over any outfit for an instant update. Knitted with a rich variegated yarn, it can add a brilliant color pop and round out even the most basic looks.

A few reasons Ansh could be your next project: 
♡ One skein of DK is a nice medium to work with. 🙂 
♡ The stitches are basic – knit, purl, k2tog, ssk, yo. 
♡ Construction is fun and engaging, you would actually want to complete it. Most of my testers took less than a week. 
♡ The finished item is stylish, easy to wear and works with a lot of outfits.

Ansh cowl is designed to use one skein of DK weight yarn. It is knitted flat following a slightly different construction and then two edges are seamed together to form the cowl. Please see the last photo for the seaming at the back. The construction is explained in detail with a schematic in the pattern.
