This Candy Stripes Cowl is such a fun cowl to make. This is one of the reasons why I am in love with this cowl. I love how the colors trick the eye making this piece look like stripes in colorful candy. The use of stitches make this piece a simple yet complex looking piece. This cowl can be used as a long accent piece to your wardrobe or can be doubled for warmth.
