Deco Fans Cowl

This pattern is distributed exclusively by Malabrigo Yarn at fiber festivals and fairs.

Deco Fans is inspired by classic art deco wallpaper. Although the stitch pattern looks complex, it features a combination of slipped stitches and simple cabling so colors are worked one at a time.

Worked in two colors of Mecha, the slipped stitches of this pattern provides a great opportunity to pair one a semisolid colorway with one of the highly variegated or watercolor colorways that Malabrigo is known for. Knit flat, it has a button band to provide a variety of different ways to wear the cowl.
