I’m so excited to bring to you my first ever knit pattern! I have been knitting on and off for several years now and up until recently, I haven’t paid much attention to my knitting needles. I have finally gotten back into my knitting groove and have decided to write my first knit pattern to share my latest project. I made this quick and super simple Color Block Cowl utilizing the seed stitch (also known as the moss stitch) and using the most gorgeous wool from We Are Knitters. I hope you enjoy the pattern! If you don’t knit, don’t worry! I will be releasing the crochet version of this pattern next week. Happy Knitting! 🙂
