Here are my free patterns for a picot cowl and arm warmers. They are quick and easy to crochet up and perfect for keeping you warm in the cool spring weather.
I’m thinking a hat and a bag to match might also look great in this stitch pattern. Ahh… so many ideas, yet so little time to get it all done.
