A simple colorwork cowl with easy to remember pattern repeats inspired by the Native American arrows my grandfather collected on and around his South Texas farm.

Knit in the round, this easy geometric design is great for a first colorwork project and holds enough interest for advanced knitters as well. The dense fabric the colorwork creates will make a warm cowl to wear around your neck for comfort or a pop of color under your coat.
