The picot friendly cowl is mindless to crochet and stylish to wear. It has a nice color combo, which you can customize to match your outfit.
The size of the cowl is also easy to adjust, as the stitch pattern is only a multiple of two. And that means you can use any yarn and hook size that you have on hand.
More patterns are coming in the picot friendly series, including a hat and bag, and who knows what else. So stay tuned for those.
