Lately, my daughter has been sneaking into my handknits basket and trying on a number of my cowls. She looked so cute that I had to make one just for her. This cowl is worked flat in a cozy textured stitch pattern. Any little girl would love a chance to pick out her favorite colored yarn and a few adorable buttons for her very own cowl. I know Emma sure did!
