This pattern was part of BlackSheep at Orenco’s 2016 Accessories Club!

While the Siskiyou mountain range is not the highest of ranges in the Cascades, it sure can make travel between Oregon and California tricky in the winter. After being caught on the wrong side of the pass on a trip, I was inspired to make a fun cowl. You’ll find a diamond-shaped edging reminiscent of the mountains, tire tracks through the snow, and tree branches decorating this cowl. Whether you travelled over the Siskiyou Mountains or not, I hope you’ll be delighted by this not too difficult to work cowl.
