I got this brand new yarn from Jill Draper in the mail, and PRESTO, two days later I had my new favorite cowl!
Presto Cowl uses a simple slipped beading technique to create a lightly ruched fabric when combined with EASY lace! It really doesn’t get more satisfying than this!
There is a KAL and Spoiler thread set up for Presto Cowlo here: https://www.ravelry.com/discuss/nelkin-designs/
Kits for Presto Cowlo were sent as March’s shipment for Lola’s Choice (Laura’s super fun small knitted kit club). Kits are sold out!!! If you don’t want to miss out on future Lola’s Choice kits you should subscribe!
