Gradient Yarn: Dutchess County
Dutchess County is another lovely cowl offering from Adventure Du Jour Designs and a fabulous was to use your favorite gradient yarn color. The instructions are super easy to follow, and the knitting never gets old because you're working five different textures over the course of the cowl. There's even a handy blocking tip at the end of the pattern that you'll wind up using again and again for all kinds of circular projects.
I knit my version using the entirety of one Pebble Sock Gradient Yarn in Ice. My sample is probably far bigger than it needs to be (though it's quite cozy with the extra length), so you could always switch colors before you reach the end of your little skein. This pattern would also work great with a Lilt Sock Gradient and pretty much any color.
Make sure you check out Marcy & Debbi's other designs as well. We've knit quite a few of them and they always seem to be fun with a little challenging flavor but never so fiddly that they don't make good travel knitting.
Have a great week, and see you soon with another Monday Gradient Yarn Idea post!
