Stashbuster | One-skein | Quick knit 

Some of my favorite memories are those spent wandering the woods to gather kindling. Time with friends and loved ones around a campfire is one of the nicest ways to spend an evening – stories and spiked hot chocolate are so much better around a fire, don’t you think? The lattice and seed panels of this cowl remind me of layered bundles of twigs and the embers that dance and crackle around them.
