These kits can be knitted up using the Brighten up Cowl Pattern or you can just purchase the kit for a project of your own choosing.
The Brighten Up Cowl is the perfect transitional piece for your wardrobe— a light layer that will add color and flair to any outfit! This bandana-style cowl is unlike any you’ve knit before. It’s filled with stitches that are easy to work, though the unique construction will require a leap of faith to see it all come together in the end. Lisa K Ross has created a video tutorial to guide you through the challenging parts, and the results are unmistakably joyful!
The kit price does not include the pattern. The pattern cost is $14.00 - you receive a printed copy and we will purchase and send you the electronic version as well.
