I love cowls. They can be easy or intricate and they don't take much yarn so you can actually buy that beautiful expensive yarn and not break the bank making a cowl. This pattern is a very easy, yet beautiful cowl. The pattern can be done as a last minute holiday gift as it does not take very long and only uses one skein of yarn. Other yarns may be substituted as long as the weight and gauge remain constant.

I have been crafting for almost 50 years, which includes knitting, crocheting and sewing. Any craft I can do with my hands has given me joy. I have always played with designing even as a child, but have seriously devoted time to knit design the last 5 years. I knit and sew for my 3 children (now grown) and my 5 grandchildren.
