I’ve had a strange year so far, and to be honest, completely forgot I signed up for this stashdown, but I had so much fun being a part of this last year - when I shared my Whimsical Sashay Cowl - so when I got a reminder email recently, I got to town on my design. To find out more about The Holiday Stashdown 2016 and get a complete schedule of pattern releases, check out my Holiday Stashdown CAL Announcement on my blog.

- Less than 106 yards of Super Bulky Yarn - I used less than one skein of Lion Brand’s Wool Ease Thick n Quick in the Barley colorway
- M13/9mm Crochet Hook
- Tapestry Needle for Sewing and Weaving in Ends

Material Notes:
I was given this yarn as a gift from my boyfriend’s mom. It had been sitting in my car waiting to be used when I thought about this cowl. Dig through your stash and find some super bulky yarn you have been waiting to use, or wanting to destash. At first, I thought about using some of my Sashay Yarn as I had done for the Whimsical Sashay Cowl (and still might), but I also think Bernat’s Blanket Yarn would work, two strands of worsted weight yarn held together or even three strands of lightweight yarn held together - get creative!

Time Spent:
I had my cowl ready to wear in about an hour.
