Shelter + Twin Lakes Cowl.

Already mastered your “First Colorwork Cowl”? Knit Tressa Weidenaar’s “Twin Lakes Cowl” with Brooklyn Tweed Shelter! This colorwork pattern is similar, but has larger motifs, some of which require trapping long floats – here’s a tutorial from Modern Daily Knitting that shows a few methods.

Weidenaar’s bold use of high contrast color caught my eye; she’s used Fossil in the background and Homemade Jam and Almanac in the foreground, two shades that are about the same value and both contrast against the white.

As I put together these alternate “Twin Lakes Cowl” color combinations, I kept this strategy in mind – one light background color and two dark contrast colors.

Then I flipped it, selecting one dark background color and two light contrast colors.
