What is more fun than working on a new pattern with each shop you visit? Don’t worry if you can’t make it to all of the shops. Whether you make it to 4 or 24, this pattern will give you enough pieces to make a fun cowl or scarf. A buttoned edge means you can knit this pattern as a cowl or a scarf and have fun with it. Some of the patterns will be more challenging than others. Choose 5 colors or more. You could even use up leftover yarn for this pattern, but I love the Dream in Color minis.
This pattern is meant for beginning knitters to experienced knitters and all those in-between. Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
