This beautiful Knit Lipstick Cowl is one of our favorite striped cowl patterns. It is quite easy to work up and you'll absolutely love the pattern! It is simple and easy to learn, which always makes knitting enjoyable. You can use any combination of colors to personalize this pattern. For the holidays, you can work up a bright red and green to gift someone for the holiday season.

When adding Color B:
Hold color B behind the work, leaving a 4-5'' tail. Insert knitting needle into next stitch to knit wrap; wrap Color B around needle; bring color B forward. Continue knitting, being careful not to pull on Color B too hard.
When knitting stripes:
You don't have to cut the yarn every time you switch colors! Instead, pick up the new color and twist once with the old color before knitting the next round. Be sure to leave enough slack in the yarn so it's not too tight.
