I’m releasing a new free crochet pattern every week through December. Each one can be made with 3 skeins of yarn or less, and would make a great gift (for someone else, or as a reward to yourself for all of your holiday crafting!).

Today’s free pattern is A Lil’ Something Sparkly Cowl. This infinity cowl/circle scarf makes a statement by combining Cascade Yarns Cherub Aran Sparkle (a yarn with just the right amount of metallic thread) and a crossed puff stitch to create just the right amount of texture.
