Directionality

Mix two speckly colors and play around with directionality on this fun-to-work and fab-to-wear cowl!

You’ve got a piece you can wear upside-down and rightside-up.

Re-entry is a you-know-what

OMG, you guys have given me aaaaaalllll of the feels this week!

And then there’s the simple fact that knitting along with others ensures that you will be …
