Eco Duo Cowl - Designed by Jilldeal (Free Pattern)

So, yesterday that Cascade Sheep made it over to Milford, PA and found a yarn shop - Jilldeal, Inc and a lovely cowl.  The cowl was designed by Jilldeal to match the Eco Duo Slouch Hat designed by Betty Balcomb.  The cowl only requires 1-2 skeins (depending on the length) of Eco Duo (70% undyed Baby Alpaca/30% undyed Merino Wool - 197 yds/100 g)


Of course, the Cascade Sheep thinks it needs to have this cowl made.....
Per Jilldeal, "This Cowl can be made in 2 lengths.... the original 33" finished....but can be made smaller is desirous of being closer to the neck with little drape.  So smaller or large, you decide....."
