Iced Experiment


Iced Experiment Cowl
This project is a perfect stash buster. Multiple strands of yarn are held together to create a one-of-a-kind yarn. The centre cabled panel is worked first. Stitches are then picked up along each side of the panel to form the body of the cowl (long side) and the button-hole tab (short side).
