The Peacock cowl features an easy stitch pattern that is easily memorized. It is also a 1-skein project, which is always the best, isn’t it?!

The yarn I used for my cowl is Mary Maxim Prism. To get the same effect as mine, I highly recommend using this yarn! However, if you’d like a good substitute, I also recommend Lion Brand Mandala or Lion Brand Cupcake.

Both of these are also multicolored and DK weight, the same as Prism yarn!
