YO Madness
You’ll be mad for these yarn overs, in a good and happy way! This project has a lot of them! Get familiar or practice your skills at uncomplicated lace knitting. It’s rhythmic, fun, and, above all, easy, using 6 different mini skeins of yarn. It’s your option, though, and you may choose to knit the cowl using two 100-gram skeins of any fingering (sock) yarn. This is a good stash buster project!

Designed, knit, named and modeled by Ginny (first pic), the YO Madness cowl can be worn in many styles. A big thank you to Andrea (other pics) for modeling!

Note about the yarn: Allegro Lace is no longer available, but ANY fingering weight (sock) yarn will work with this pattern.
