Mokuti Cowl

$8.00

The Mokuti Cowl is a warm and colorful piece, created using the crochet linen stitch. The name comes from my husband, who collects metal tools. When he saw this piece, he thought it looked similar to the Mokuti effect, which combines multiple metals to create an interesting color design.

Multiple colors were used to create a depth of color and to keep this piece interesting while you’re making it. Instructions are included for both a 3-color and 2- color version. Tonals were used in the 3-color piece, and a tonal plus a variegated for the 2-color version. My goal was to create a pattern with a variety of options.
