Flicker & Fade by Elizabeth Smith Knits | Flicker & Fade is a fun and easy cowl knit in the round with 2 different size options (short or long) and features 4 colors of Malabrigo Chunky yarn - each color blends into the next, creating a beautiful ombre affect, and the linen stitch pattern in this bulky-weight yarn looks great on either side - I actually prefer the inside fabric, but both look beautiful in this yarn!
