A chunky cowl with love in every stitch!

Large colorwork chevrons on the bottom half and small chevrons on the top meet in the middle to form a series of sweet little hearts that hug the neck. Two-color corrugated ribbing finishes off each edge. If either of these techniques is new to you, don’t fret! The pattern includes links to video tutorials on my YouTube channel in case you need a helping hand.
