Crimson and Cream Slouchy Cowl Free Knitting Pattern \ Posh Pooch Designs

This Knitting Pattern has 
been on my Needles for While.
I Originally was going to release it with my
Christmas In July Patterns,
But it wasn't ready yet.
Crimson and Cream Slouchy Cowl 
is a Hood, a Hat, and a Cowl.

My Husband went on a Business trip to Europe.
He got me Yarns from Several places.
This Wool is from Norway
He is a good man who understands my needs.
Anyway, I was saving it for a special pattern.
And This it it.
although, any Worsted weight yarn will
 work great for this pattern.
It is basically stitched in stockinette with 
an eyelet row thrown in for a little fun.
This is a great pattern for a beginner,
 as well as a season knitter.
Works up fast, and makes a great gift.
I am also working up a crochet version.
So if you do not knit...don't panic.
Hoping to release the Slouchy Cowl Crochet Pattern
 in the coming weeks.
