How much awesomeness can 1 mini skein add to a project? When you take a mini and turn it on its side, a lot! This cowl starts with the contrast colour and features a big yarnover for simple but dramatic edging. Stitches are then picked up and an old stitch pattern plays out with sweet elegance across the body of the cowl before transforming to a simple lace and then an even simpler garter ribbing.

If you love this, you might also love the +1 Pop Collection - a set of 7 patterns that also use 1 mini skein and 1 regular skein.
