Pattern Description:

This beaded tendril cowl is the perfect accessory for a night on the town, lunch with the girls, a bonfire on a cold fall night, or a stroll on snowy winter's day. As the light glimmers on each bead, illuminating the face, everyone will marvel at your talent. The beaded tendrils may look difficult, but you'll be surprised how fast you knit through this advanced beginner pattern. Tech edited by Katherine Vaughan, the pattern includes written directions, a chart, a diagram for the button, and pictures. Also available on you tube by Eco Chic Knits are two videos walking you through the techniques of making tendrils and the beaded button.

If you still think this cowl might be a challenge, perhaps some words from the MKAL participants will put your mind at ease.
"It was a very fun knit and I love the finished product."
"I am all done with clue #2... considering doing another if time permits. Love it!"
"This is a very nice knit! I'll definitely make more than one of these."
"I'm having Cowl withdrawal because I was having so much fun with it."
