The Crochet Mandala Cowl, is designed to go with the Mandala yarn by Lion Brand yarns, and is a one skein project. (or one cake project)
The detail of the stitching in this cowl creates a beautifully unique texture that will keep you stylish and warm.
I got inspired by the name and the yarn construction. This yarn has some beautiful color changes that create a lovely gradient and presents many colors, without needing to do the color changes yourself, and without having to purchase 5 different balls of yarn to be able to have 5 different colors.
