Sweetness - by Emily Wessel
New Free Pattern - available exclusively on the Loop Blog.
Sweet and rich hot chocolate, delicate lavender and a simple little lace pattern combine to make this snuggly cowl all sweetness and light! It is also a great way to have your first experience with intarsia – a simple and useful colourwork technique which allows you to work more than one colour one a single row.
Don’t know how to work intarsia? VERY SIMPLE tutorial here.
