Backlit Cowl

IMG_9287

Beautiful stitch pattern combined with soft Aran-weight yarn creates a warm and cozy cowl which keeps the chill away.
It also makes a great gift.
The cowl is worked lengthwise with applied i-cord on both edges. When the desired length is achieved, the garment is joined into a loop by using Three-Needle Bind-off. Both chart and written instructions are provided.

The pattern uses Crochet Chain Cast-on but you can use any provisional cast on method of your choice.
