Cowl for my sister

PaulKnittingNow's picture

Just finished a cowl for my sister. Used the pattern Elis (free pattern on Ravelry)...took a few tries to get the indian cross stitch correct, but I am pleased with the results. Here is a pic of it while blocking...looks better draped around the neck. Hope she likes it!

That is some of the best Indian crossover work I've seen for a long time. With that particular shade of white, it works perfectly. Lucky sister.
