This cowl has such a neat texture and I love the thin contrasting stripe in this pattern. The textured ripple stitch is surprisingly easy to create!
This cowl can be made in any length, but I wanted it small. It fits nice and cozily around the neck! I picked the colors for the holiday season. Doesn’t this give so much holiday feels?!
