Burst Your Bobble Cowl

Get cozy in a dramatic way with this warm, bulky cowl. The structure of this stunning, yet simple pattern should get you noticed in the best way possible. This fluffy felt yarn was my most delighted choice for the big bobble motive to take the bobbles to extremes. This cowl can be knitted bottom up in rounds or in rows and sewn together in the end. The pattern offers both ways, so you can choose the way you prefer it the most.
