Linen Chevron Cowl

Hello everyone!

It has been a very crazy and busy month or so. I know, it has been a while since I last posted an article but it really has been hectic. Because of the time restraint, it has taken me months to complete this cowl and I have to admit that I am very pleased with the end result. The Linen Chevron Cowl was knitted using Shi Bui’s Linen yarn and it features a distinctive chevron design. Because the pattern is a little long, I’m going to keep this intro short and jump into the fun part…the pattern.
