The Beauchamp Cowl is up for sale! And of course, I’ll be donating 50% of the purchase price of this pattern (and all my patterns) to MSF and the Canadian Red Cross for Haiti relief, through the end of January.
This fast and fun cowl is snuggly, warm, and a great intro to stranded colourwork knitting to boot! Worked in either fingering weight or DK weight yarn, this is a great project to use up all those little bits of sock yarn or a special fibre.
