Product details

A fun cowl in stranded knitting worked in the round and edged with k2, p2 rib. There are 2 sizes and 2 varieties of vegetable to choose from - parsnips or carrots!

With the background in a dark shade with paler motifs, you have parsnips. Choose a pale colour for the background with dark motifs, you have carrots. But your colour options don't stop there. Did you know that until the 16th century, when Dutch farmers cultivated the orange carrots with which we are familiar, carrots came in yellow, white and purple?

I would love to see purple knitted carrots, but whichever colours you choose, don't forget to upload some photos of your project, either here or on Instagram. Use #parsnipsandcarrots

It's a fairly easy stranded knit, with no float longer than 6 sts, so there is no need to trap your floats on the wrong side of the work.
