Mini-skeins are the perfect way to play with color and one is never enough! This colorful cowl features 8 mini-skeins for a stylish accessory that is easy to knit and effortless to wear. The drape of this design is similar to a triangular shawl, but uses significantly less yarn and knitting time. Choose leftover sock yarn for a stash-buster, break out those mini-skein sets you’ve been hoarding, or divide your Advent minis into 3 cowl projects in time for Christmas. The color choices are endless and entirely up to you!
