The Lucy Cowl is knit in the round. Use scrap yarn for the provisional CO. There is no need to weave in ends when you change colors for the stripes. To change colors cut the working yarn leaving a 2” tail. Using a square knot, tie the new yarn color to the tail snugly behind your last worked st. Start knitting with the new yarn. You will work every color twice. Check your gauge. If not, you run the risk of not having enough yarn.
