The Snowflake Cowl was created in my hope for snow this winter.

The last few winters haven’t really been like the winter weather I remember as a child, and my son has never seen real snow. With a few good frosts already, I am hoping for snow this year.
(Edit: Snow arrived whilst I was knitting the sample!)

It took me about 9 hours of knitting to make, so it’s quick too. Perfect for a last minute Christmas gift!
