The Peaks & Ridges Gradient Cowl kit gives you an opportunity to play with one our most decadent gradient colourway yarns using a special pattern designed exclusively for River City Yarns by Ann Budd. The Peaks & Ridges cowl was originally made up in RCY Adam & Eve as a one-skein project that highlights the variegation in this hand-dyed yarn. Barb and Cynthia have since worked up the cowl using an RCY Eden gradient kit. The outcome was a thicker, more generous cowl where you control the colour changes.

About the Peaks & Ridges Cowl:
Designed by Ann Budd exclusively for River City Yarns, this lovely cowl design makes the most of RCY’s in-house yarn, Adam & Eve. The cowl design incorporates diagonal “peaks” and vertical “ridges” that accentuate and blend the hand painted colours of this very special yarn. The pattern, which repeats over ten stitches and four rows, is easy to memorize and fun to knit.
