Light and lofty Revolutions meets glittering Cotton Gold in this cowl for a match made in heaven. One strand of each yarn is held together throughout the project.
The colors evoke an underwater feel, while the shell stitch pattern furthers the notion. The main pattern is a three row repeat using very basic crochet stitches, making this a suitable project for an adventurous beginner.
