Fireflies are a symbol of childhood for many of us, when life was lighthearted and easy and free. Whimsical hearts, flowers and fireflies adorn this little cowl. Your little one will have as much fun wearing this cowl as they do while romping in the backyard trapping fireflies and playing hide-and-go-seek. Bella Cash is so soft, it’s the perfect yarn to wear around the neck.

This cowl begins with a crochet provisional cast on. It is knit in the round to create a tube, and each end of the tube is grafted together to create a seamless, reversible cowl. You may wish to place stitch markers between each pattern repeat to help you stay on track. If you do, make sure to differentiate the BOR marker from the rest of the markers used.
