Designed especially for Yarnbox - June Mystery box. This squishy colorful cowl is offered in both knit and crochet, and offered in both fingering & worsted gauge. Basically, 4 designs in 1 pattern.

There is added bonus to this project. Add just 1 skein for knit or 2 skeins for crochet to complete a second cowl using the remnants from the first. Pattern includes color combos offered in the June Mystery box along with suggestions for adding a 6th color.

We hope you enjoyed working with our yarn as much as we do. As an added bonus to this already amazing project box, we suggest casting on for a second YARNBOX cowl using your remnants. Simply add 1 or 2 additional skeins in a complimentary/contrasting color of your choice or as we’ve suggested below. Using the same pattern and a different line up of color use, you’ll be amazed at the end result.

For the knit version, we suggest 1 skein and for the crochet version, we suggest 2 skeins. We began our 2nd cowl using a remnant and striped with the added skein throughout the project while ending using another remnant. Or you can begin and end with the added skein using it throughout the project. There really isn’t a right or wrong way. Enjoy the journey!

Pattern is a multiple of 4 stitches and easy to adjust sizing. Begin with few stitches for a tighter cowl or more for a longer cowl. Final measurements of the bonus project will vary.
