This cozy cowl is knit using only two colors of yarn and is much simpler to knit than it looks! The four row pattern involves knitting the first two rows in one color and the last two rows in the second color. Slipping stitches and the alternating colors make the ladder pattern that looks more complicated than it is. This is on my to-make list!
