Anonima Cowl Pattern
Anonima can be worn doubled or loose, is knit in the round from a provisional cast on, then joined into a tube for easy wearing - with no wrong sides. This optical pattern uses 2 complimentary singles of fingering weight semi-solids. (Stash-busting!) The impossible looking pattern is very simple… Only one color is worked at a time, the pattern is just slipped stitches and combinations of knit & purl.
The semi-solid colors of the 2 yarns work beautifully together, but the pattern is just as striking in 2 solid color, complimentary yarns.

1 skein Madeline Tosh Merino Light in Vintage Sari - color B (420 yards)
