I think I found my new favorite accessory. I have never been a huge cowl fan until today. Not that I HATED them, I just had a hard time finding one (or making one) that I loved. My (almost) 30 Minute Cowl is easy and cute, but it’s not my go-to scarf. As I pulled out my hook and yarn to design this cozy Chunky V-Stitch Cowl, I decided I would try and make it with 3 balls only. This led me to make it rather small around the neck. It was such a happy result! I am now understanding that all my cowls have been too big for my liking. Next time I made my 30 Minute Cowl, I will work at least 3 fewer rows, so it’s cozy and snug around my neck.
You learn something new every day, I guess!
