Product description

A puzzle of interlocking crosses makes for simple but engaging colorwork in this double-sided cowl. Jujika is knit width-wise in the round from a provisional cast-on, then folded and joined into a tube. The pattern offers a choice between Joinery bind-off for a quick finish or grafting in the two-color pattern for seamless perfection. The samples use strong contrast to show the tessellating crosses to full effect, but this motif is bold enough to support the use of more closely related colors, too. Wrap Jujika twice around your neck for impenetrable warmth or wear it as a long loop for a graphic accessory.
