Deco Devotion – A New Art Deco Inspired Colorwork Cowl

  • A black and gold Art Deco-inspired cowl.

Wrap yourself in all the glamour and elegance of the Art Deco style with this cozy colorwork cowl. Inspired by intricate architectural details of the Waldorf Astoria New York, this floral geometric pattern feels completely at home on a knitted cowl. One of the main tenets of Art Deco was fine craftsmanship and luxury materials. Pick two contrasting colors of yarn and knit up this stranded colorwork beauty. The cowl is knit as a tube and then folded in on itself and grafted together for a doubly warm accessory. Pattern is available on Ravelry and Payhip.
