Flicker & Fade


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!

This is the PDF version of the pattern. After going through the checkout you will receive an email with a downloadable PDF link. If you prefer to purchase through Ravelry, click here.
