The Hill Country Cowl was created to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Hill Country Weavers, a local yarn shop in Austin, TX. The colorwork motif represents the journey, obstacles and triumphs this wellknown and renewed LYS has sure to have faced over the years. May many more successful years follow!
