Wanderlust Cowl

 I am so excited to be the designer featured in this week's blog hop hosted by Crochet Foundry Magazine. There is still a lot of snow on the ground for us in January, so cozy accessories are a must. Textured stitches add to the cozy factor, and using multiple colors adds some interest to the unique design.

Furls Crochet provided the materials for this pattern, and I was drawn to these cool colors from their Wander Yarn collection. In this design, each row uses a different color, so the color combination options are endless. You can easily change up the look of this cowl based on your color choices.
