Crossroads Cowl is really fun to make and to wear.

I was on a mission to create a unique, unisex and suitable for all age groups design that will allow me to use my left over yarns; and I am very happy with the result. Hope you will be too!

The cowl is completely seamless. You will be working it bottom up, slipping stitches and cabling along the way.

This design is a great way to start colorwork and to practice some basic cables.

Have fun and enjoy your colors!
