"The Fanfare Cowl is a beginner cowl pattern worked flat and seamed on the short end. Created using a combination of fan / shell stitches this cowl is comprised entirely of double crochet stitches and can be made up in a couple of movies, or a few episodes of your favourite netflix series. Worked in Style Craft Dream Catcher yarn, this is a dk/3 weight yarn, 90% acrylic/10% wool, with a loosely wound construction. Any 3 or 4 weight yarn will work with this project."
