Floral Fanfare Cowl

A Premium Stranded Knitting Pattern

I wanted to give you a quick update. My Newest knitting pattern is now live on Ravelry and LoveCrafts.

I'm sorry it is late on Posting on the blog. I'm still getting used to this quarantine schedule, as I am sure most of you are too.

The Floral Fanfare Cowl was inspired by all the floral patterns coming out of fashion week. Doesn't that already feel like forever ago. I have always loved the vintage French toile patterns, so I was excited to see a revival of it this year.

I think we are all in need of some freshness and beauty and this cowl brings it all. I chose blue, but I think this cowl would look fabulous with a cream and green or a yellow scheme.

The construction is very simmilar to my other stranded work cowls. It makes it easy and you don't have to worry so much about tension. The design is pretty forgiving; if you miss a wrong color somewhere no one is going to know.
