Arrows + Sparrows Cowl is a fun knit. The color combos are endless and you’ll love knitting with BSF’s Extra, what a dream! Arrows + Sparrows is the perfect cowl to wear full length or doubled around your neck. It is knit flat starting with a Provisional Cast On, working a simple Chevron pattern with pretty eyelets and ending by grafting the two ends together using Kitchener Stitch.

This pattern also is included in the 3-pattern Booklet. A PDF & Hardcopy combo is availible on thecraftyjackalope.com
