I’ve been working on this cowl a row or two at a time each evening after I get in bed. It’s my favorite cowl pattern.
I’m going to start another one just because I like having something to work on before I go to sleep. And before long, you have a beautiful scarf that seems like it was hardly any work at all.
I used the rose pattern from the Rose Booties pattern you can find on Ravelry. It’s much prettier than the flower pattern that comes with the cowl pattern.
I made this pattern a few years back using a different yarn and color (ILTY in Mulberry), and I think I like that one better, although they are both nice.
It’s bulkier using the ILTY, which I like. The above pic shows the flower made by the one provided in the cowl pattern.
This is what it looks like unwound.
