Road to Yesterday is a crocheted cowl worked in the round. With textured body, and trim with beautiful lace, you can make this cowl in any weight of yarn. You can get a cozy and warm cowl with heavier yarn for fall or winter, or dainty and lacey piece with lighter weight yarn to create a dramatic effect to your outfit.

As with all my other patterns, this pattern comes with row-by-row written direction in US crochet term and charts.
