Heart Stitch Cowl Pattern
This week on Ask Me Monday we lean into the love, by making a heart stitch cowl. This project worked on super bulky yarn, and on size 15 needles, so it whips up lickety-split. Make one in time to wear on Valentine’s Day, or wear your heart on sleeve, er, neck, all Winter long!
