Christmas Cowl of Leftovers

Christmas Cowl of Leftovers
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

I was going through my plastic tub of Christmas yarn.
 I have several balls of yarn leftovers  from various Christmas projects. And as I played with them, I thought, "Oh this one
 or that one would make a nice Christmas cowl".

Some are Sparkly, some are furry, some are plain. 
I love all sorts of textures and colors of yarn.

Then I thought, "I'll crochet a cowl with them all!"
So I did.

So here is what I did.
You need to think more like an artist on this project. Relax and let your creative juices flow.
And although, This Cowl is designed with Christmas Yarns, you can make this with any yarn leftovers you have on hand.

See The Video on my Youtube Channel at This LINK
Okay, lets get started!
This Cowl is stitched in rounds.
I will not be giving the yarn color changes.

as I just used up what I had, and changed colors, 
when I ran out of each color.
