Piece of Cake Cowl

Piece of Cake Cowl

Inspired by the way the colors danced together on the skein, this cowl was designed to take advantage of the color transitions of the Freia line and uses every last bit of yarn on the skein. The pattern itself is reminiscent of the latticework and detail of a wedding cake as it moves from layer to layer. Knit in the round, this cowl will stand up and be noticed as it graces the neck of the person lucky enough to wear it.
