a copy of the Cold Front Cowl Pattern

Mini-set of HCW stitch markers

Important Note: The Cold Front Cowl pattern uses 14 colors of Road to China Light as written. These kits are designed so that you can substitute the contrast and main colors throughout the cowl as you like, making each finished project unique to you. Although there is sufficient yardage for you to complete the cowl in each kit, you may want to add additional colors of Road to China Light if you want a more diverse palette, or if you plan to re-use a color in two or more larger charts within the cowl.
