One of my goals this summer was to make several more cowls. I find them enjoyable to make and to wear so I wanted to do more with them. When a friend approached me about making cowls for her shop, Coyote & Cactus, I was excited to get to work.

I decided to make a color chart for a series of cactuses in the form of a continuous pattern. This was the end result:


I’m very proud of the design of the cowl and the color choices I made. I’m planning to make a few more of these in different colors, including some reversible ones. I think I will make my cowl-making goal this summer. I will also be posting the pattern soon so that others can make their own.
