I bought some beautiful yarn at Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool festival this year, and one of those yarns inspired this pattern. When you have beautiful yarn, you don’t need a lot going on in your pattern. This linen stitch cowl has a small amount of shaping around the bottom half to form to your shoulders and keep you nice and warm!
I have linked tutorials with videos to help with the linen st and both the M1R and the M1L.
