Snood-Cowl Pattern…or Not?

A while back I designed this snood/cowl…and have been undecided about whether I should write up the pattern or not. Overall, I like the concept and design. It would be part of the “Madeira Collection” with Breza Scarf. The yarn is fingering/sock weight so it’s light-weight while still warm. What do you think? Should I […]

Sometimes a design comes together exactly as envisioned in my head…like Aspen Whispers Scarf did. My newest pattern just seemed to knit itself!
