Having a quick project that you can finish in 1 day and wear it immediately is awesome! This time I tried to design something quick, easy and at the same time give the rich texture. This cowl is very easy to make using 3 stitches only. It may look more complicated, but it is very easy and you will enjoy working on
the Alpine stitches that are made from easy, basic stitches.
