A deceptively easy knitting pattern for the beginning knitter or a quick knit for the experienced.
Bee Creative is a cowl knit in the round in a mosaic slip stitch pattern.
It‘s a fantastic use for that gradient or stash buster.
It is written for 4 weights of yarn-
Fingering/light sport, DK, Worsted and Bulky.

On choosing colors:
The MC should contrast or compliment the CC.
The CC can be one color or as many as you like.
Each cell row is a color and the number of cell rows can easily be adjusted to accommodate gradients.
