Change Your Mind Cowl is a sibling pattern to my original Change Your Mind Shawl. This Cowl was designed with mini skeins in mind. Or one mini skein and a full skein. Or just one full skein. Basically, if you can’t make up your mind, then make them all! The pattern is worked in the round and includes techniques such as twisted knit ribbing, sections of plain stockinette alternating with sections of garter stitch, and a simple eyelet section. The pattern also works great with all types of yarn: tonal, speckled, solid, variegated, self-striping.
