What’s the Buzz

My bright and edgy Shawl Collar Cowl.

When I saw the latest free pattern on the Purl Bee, I found it very intriguing. I knew it was only a matter of time before I cast-on. I knit this whole cowl in one fast and furious weekend of knitting. (And just in time, as it’s suddenly cold, wet, and rainy here.) I love the Shawl Collar the Purl Bee made in Metro Silver and Fame, but I decided to totally switch things up to add spice to my neutral wardrobe for the Minnesota winter. The funky Techno palette really leaves a ton of color possibilities!
