I bought a few balls of this luscious yarn at my local yarn store and have been saving it for the perfect project. I wanted to use it for something that would show off it’s gorgeous color variation and where I can enjoy how soft it is. Since a cowl is pretty much a daily accessory for me, it seemed the perfect choice … and this stitch pattern totally shows off the yarn! I call this my Inside Out Cowl because it is worked in the round and the pattern shows up on the wrong side of the work … which is really the right side of the cowl!! I am absolutely in love with how it came out!
