Pattern Description:

This luscious cowl is designed to highlight a variety of traditional stitch patterns - it's the class project for my Twisted Stitches class. By the time you complete this cowl, you'll have the skills and confidence to tackle more complex projects.

I've also included two cuff patterns from the class which are great for practicing twisted stitches before tackling the cowl.

Line by line instructions are included for the cowl and each cuff pattern. Red borders on the charts help delineate the different stitch patterns.
