“Happy Mosaic Cowl by Diane Augustin”
Description
Happy Mosaic Cowl
Its no secret that I love soft, fuzzy yarn. Add a little bling and thats a bonus! Glam Haze was so much fun to work with. Its an alpacamohairmetallic blend bulky, lofty, blooming strand that you cant help but squish and cuddle.
The cowl starts off close to the neck and increases so that it could fit over your shoulders, if you like. I chose two colors of this yarn and decided on mosaic knitting for much of it. I found the rhythm of the slip stitch technique very soothing, which made me happy. Gails big smile helped me select the name.
I hope you enjoy it, too!
