Add a flock of sweet sheep to your winter wardrobe! Designed by Jennifer Chisam of Mountain Legacy Designs, the cowl can be knit using our worsted weight Ridgedale Farm Yarn OR you can opt for the DK weight version in Prairie Shepherds Yarn (please see the other kit listing for details).
The cowl is a quick knit using charted, stranded colorwork. It's a great colorwork project for an adventurous beginner, because it's worked in the round and has very few floats that need to be captured.
