This pattern is only available as part of the Street Scenes “ebook” - 3 patterns in one!

A smocked pattern looks harder than it is. Use this one to break up variegated yarn and give textural interest without being too fussy.

Consider trying a larger needle size to give this solid fabric a bit more drape.

If you’d prefer a closer-fitting cowl, instructions are included for how to modify this pattern.
