A Collection of Cowls

In this class, we’ll work through three distinctive cowls that can be worked up in no time! We’ll make a lace leaf pullover, a textured side-buttoned collar, and a simple open work moebius. Each cowl demonstrates a different technique and all are great for gifts or for yourself. Beading options for each will be shown but are optional.
