Pattern Description:

***Happy Spring!***
**Happy MN Yarn Shop Hopping!**

A warm ***Thank You*** to all who have taken classes with me. It's been my pleasure! I hope to see you all again:) Please enjoy this pattern which is a free download through April 17th.

As the MN shop hop approaches, here's another fun cowl pattern for you! Grab this pattern and head out to the hop to pick up yarn, needles and beads. Have fun!

The beads are optional, but it's so easy and so much fun to add them to your knitting, you just have to try it! This pattern is a good way to get started.:)

Learn a couple of tips and tricks for the cast on, join and bind off, too.

I recommend size 8, 24" length circulars for this project.

Also, depending on the yarn, you will use between 250-300 yards of sport weight or dk.

TOHO 6/0 seed beads are available at many of the shops:)
Bead stringing information is included in the pattern. We used approximately 500 beads in each sample cowl.

Special long tail cast on information is included.

I'll be at: [Knit'n from the Heart][1] Thursday and Friday;
[All About Yarn][2] on Saturday and [Darn Knit Anyway][3] on Sunday. Stop by and say hi! I'll be very happy to see you!

A special thank you to Wendy and Susan for test knitting the pattern.:)

Happy Hoppin'! Enjoy!

***Note:***
The purple cowl was knit with Dream in Color, Perfectly Posh Sport. Color: Victoria.
The pink cowl was knit with Malabrigo, Arroyo. Color: English Rose
The mauve cowl was knit with Juniper Moon, Findley dk. Color: Hyacinth.
