I’m so excited to share with you my Sweet Memories Cowl pattern. It was my mystery project from Yarn Along last week. Best of all, it’s free! It’s nice and easy and knits up quickly. It is long enough to wrap two or three times. I think cowls are now my go-to gift for those special people in my life. This one is destined to keep a very dear friend toasty warm.
