I am so excited to share my latest pattern with you. This gorgeous Snowy Path Cowl was inspired by the recent snow storm we received on the east coast. The stitch pattern reminds me of footprints or tracks in the snow. I made this soft and cozy cowl for myself so that I would have something nice and warm for the cold winter weather we are having here in New York. I made this cowl using Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn. I love the yarn because it is chunky and very soft. I used white because it reminded me of the snow but also because the colorway is called New York White! I hope you enjoy the pattern. Happy Crocheting!
Update: I am so excited to share that my Snowy Path Cowl is part of the Make it for Me event over at ELK Studio Handcrafted Crochet Designs! Click here to see all of the other fabulous projects that you can make just for yourself 🙂
