Checked Cowl

$6.00 USD

This cowl looks complicated with the three colors but you are only working with one color per round so it’s actually a good beginner project. It’s a good stash buster, too. Find 3 skeins of yarn in the same color family and CO!

Size

Cowl is approximately 27in./69cm. in circumference as written but is easy to adjust. Just make sure to CO a multiple of 4. Sample is 12in./30.5cm. tall.
