The Bird Tribe cowl is the first pattern of the mosaic Birds neckwear collection, featuring original bold graphics inspired by Peruvian textiles, created specially for this design. The cowl is knitted from bottom up in mosaic stockinette stitch, casting on three stitches and increasing at the beginning and end of each right side row. After completing the flap, stitches are cast on for the back of the neck and joined for knitting in the round. The Main Colour can be solid, speckled or slightly variegated, as long there is good contrast with the Contrasting Colour.
