Elgin Knit Works
This cowl was inspired by Irene's (3 Ply Podcast) Row by Row Sampler Sock pattern. It is quick to knit up and holds the knitter’s interest with the various stitches presented throughout the project.Perhaps you have that one skein of tonal DK weight yarn that would be perfect for this cowl. If you have more than 210 yards, that’s a bonus and will allow you to knit the cowl a bit longer.Proceeds from the sale of this cowl will be donated to the July 28-29 Mini Meet Up in Hoffman Estates.
