Now that I’ve got my website going, I wanted to design a new pattern to put on here! So I dug through my yarn stash and picked out some of my favorite yarn- Lion Brand Heartland in Glacier Bay. I decided to try my hand at some filet crochet, something I had never tried before, and came up with this cowl! I love how simple it is, yet with the tweed look of the yarn, can be dressed up or dressed down! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
