This is a striped corner-to-corner mosaic pattern worked in stripes. You work colours with an alternate cream row. I used 2 balls of Stylecraft Batik DK in cream and then one ball each of the colour.
Because this pattern is striped there are ALOT of ends to weave in. You can work the ends into your stitches as you start a new row, but I would not want you to be under the impression that there is not much finishing to complete the cowl. It does look fabulous when it is finished.
If you have not done any corner to corner crochet yet I would suggest that you watch one of the many Youtube videos which give you guidance on how the pattern is worked.
