Cross Stitch Cowl
By: Kristen Mangus
Y’all have heard the saying “Everything is bigger in Texas”! Well, Kristen has certainly met those standards with her design of the Cross Stitch Cowl made on the KB Zippy loom with Bernat Blanket Big yarn.
The Cross Stitch Cowl is BIG, it is as soft as a fluffy cloud, it is plush, it is like a great big marshmallow and so toasty warm. The Cross Stitch Cowl is perfect for those blustery, snowy cold days of winter.
The Cross Stitch Cowl is worked in the round. The cross stitches gives the cowl some extra fun texture.
A huge bonus it’s easy and works up super fast with only 10 rounds.
