"Soulful Blanket Cowl" by Tif Neilan @tifneilan_handknits

For a quick, transitional accessory garment, whip up this cowl by Tif Neilan. You'll need 2 skeins of your main color for a circumference of 55-63" or 3 skeins for 68.5-79." Then add 1 skein of each contrast color (you can make it with anywhere from 2 contrast colors all the way up to 4!). Our model is wearing Smoky Grey as the main color, with contrast colors Creme, Denim, Pitch Black, and Lavender. Tif uses US Sizes 10, 11, and 13 needles in the project.

We also love these groupings for a 3-color version:
Slate Grey with Creme + Merlot
Denim with Navy + Creme
