Ribbed Fringe Cowl

Every 6 months, a certain project in the fiber-art community will go viral. Popular past projects have been mermaid tail blankets, bun beanies, turtle blankets, crocodile booties, knit looking beanies, African flower amigurumis, and so many other lovely designs. It's so exciting to see our beautiful community thriving when the world catches a love of our handmade art.

Recently, I've noticed a lot of knit scarves popping up all over social media. While I do love seeing fiber art go viral, the scarves are factory knitted and mass made. BOO! I may be a bit biased as a handmade artist myself, but buying something someone created with their own two hands will ALWAYS be superior. I wanted to design an alternative crochet pattern for my fiber art friends that want to keep up with this new demand of fiber-art scarves, but in a more community friendly way. This textured cowl will whip up quick with unlimited color ways for every fashionista. Enjoy!
