The Sharing Cowl Collection is a set of quick, one-skein projects.
The stitch pattern is eye-catching, yet easy to remember, and perfectly distributes the gorgeous colors of this variegated yarn.
This pattern includes three versions of the cowl.
Version 1 (photo 1 above) creates an adult-sized cowl.
Version 2 (photo 2 above) creates an infinity cowl, which is longer and skinnier.
Version 3 creates two child-sized cowls.
Each version uses one skein of yarn (the child's version creates two cowls from one skein.)
24 stitches and 32 rows per 4-inch square in stockinette on US 6 (4mm) needle
