Simplicity Cowl


I liked the pattern I found for free at Michael's called Simplicity Cowl.  It was made from Lion brand's "Homespun" yarn and looked so soft and warm.  I had several yarn scraps from other projects that I thought I could combine to make the pattern, since I didn't have enough of any one skein.  I love how it turned out!  Luckily, each color matched hues with other colors of the yarns.  Two of the colors were solids, while the other two were tweed-like blends.  As I have said before, I rarely use a pattern completely as it is written.  I like to put my own "spin" on it.
