Sooooo, who has Caron x Pantone skeins lying around? A better question would be who doesn’t? If you have only 2 skeins you can make this cowl!

Let’s face it. This stuff is impossible to resist buying. It’s so soft and squishy, and pretty and we were going to get banned from the yarn store if we kept rubbing it against our faces in the middle of the aisle. So we HAD to buy some. Right? Just me? Well, whatever led you to buy your yarn, let’s make something with it!

Inspiration & Design:

This yarn is so soft it would have been wasted on a bag design. I really wanted to make something wearable… against my face… because of the aforementioned rubbing. So a cowl was the obvious choice.

I designed the pattern to use only 2 skeins because the yarn is a little pricey. If you happen to end up at the store without your coupons, I didn’t want you to have to buy more than 2. The stitch pattern is an easy fun repeat of puffs, dc, and sc that will make this cowl fly off your hook.

I chose the brightest colors in the collection, and if you know me, you’re not surprised. But feel free to choose ANY two coordinating skeins, two of the same color, or go stash diving!
