Both of these cowls are made from the same seven balls of wonderfully soft The Alpaca Yarn Company yarn. Two patterns from the same yarn. Blue Flame (the smaller cowl) is designed with a simple 3-1 stitch repeat - three stitches of one color and one of another. The pattern is made when the colors are changed. Blue Flame Dancing (the larger cowl) features classic Fair Isle motifs in the same warm and cool shades of Blue Flame.
