Scrunchy Cowl

The Scrunchy Cowl pattern is brought to you by one of our regulars--Astrid Schmidt-Nielsen. We used two skeins of the Frog Tree Chunky Alpaca. This yarn is so soft and squishy and works nicely with the cables that weave throughout. You can easily knit this cowl up in a few nights and wear it immediately. Total instant gratification!
