Throughout my blogging journey, I’ve made many changes: simple changes like logos and colors, and big changes like renaming entirely! If you’ve been with me from the beginning, you’ll know that my biggest change was separating my local photography business and my crochet business. When I took this leap to separate the two, I designed this cowl as part of my re-launch.
That decision will always mean a lot to me, as it has really propelled my blog to where it is today. I’m glad to have such a cute pattern to mark the occasion.
The New Beginnings Cowl is an easy to work pattern with simple row repeats and classic stitch combinations. I just love the look of it in the Heartland yarn. What yarn do you think this cowl would look great in?
Don’t forget to save this pattern in your favorites and add it to your project queue to save it for later! View this pattern on Ravelry here.
How cute is this little sign that I found at Hobby Lobby! I thought it was totally appropriate to photograph the New Beginnings Cowl with such a fitting message!
I’d love to see what you make with this tutorial! Don’t forget to share a photo of your finished work in your Ravelry projects and my Facebook group!
