Tunisian Crossed Basketweave Cowl

"Tunisian Crossed Basketweave Cowl is warm loosely fitted Tunisian crochet cowl that is the perfect accessory for cold autumn and winter days. It is made of medium thick baby alpaca and merino wool that is surprisingly light due to the special manufacturing technique; the fibres of yarn are blown into a tube together rather than spun. This makes garments made of this yarn beautifully soft to touch while warm and cosy. Materials: Drops Air (65% Alpaca, 28% Polyamide, 7% Wool | 10 ply, aran, worsted | 50 g (1.8 oz) = 150 m (164 yds)), Moss Green (A) #12, Red Brick (B) #28 "

NotesThe Tunisian Crossed Basketweave cowl is worked flat, RS facing from right to left, and assembled using the locking mattress stitch along the short sides of the project.
