Original published as part of our Wild Prairie Knits 2015 Year of Mini Mysteries.
We will continue our year of Mystery by traveling to Sweden. As we tour Sweden, we will be working on a large cowl in 4 colors with some intricate lace, an introduction to simple intarsia and lots of fun.
Our gorgeous cowl is created by knitting in the round from two contrasting colors of fingering weight yarn with 2 additional contrast colors.
Pattern discussions will be in the Wild Prairie Knits group, so come and join us.
