Forsythia Cowl Kit

This little cowl was inspired by the early blooms of spring.  Forsythia are one of the first to thrust their yellow blooms towards the light and this combination of patterns made me think of the bare twigs before blooming as well as the burst of flowers after.  

This pattern is meant for adventurous novice knitters to experienced knitters and all those in-between. Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
