This is my personal favorite of the Best Buds’ cowls. Miranda, the sparkling red-headed model, is a vivacious girlie girl with a dramatic flare. I do believe we will see her in the spot light on stage down the road. This cowl, worked in the round from the bottom, features a combination of stockinette stitch and a squishy textured stitch throughout the body. Eyelets on one side are cinched together with an i-cord ribbon. The combination of the side ruching, big bow and different stitch pattern make this cowl perfect for that little starlet in your life.
