Lion Brand has recently come up with some pretty cool new yarns, and some pretty new patterns to go with them. It’s not just Homespun anymore. This past winter, I crocheted two of their Simple Cowl using Unique, and this pattern is so quick and lovely (and warm!) that I plan to make more as gifts. Now they’ve released a new one, Textured Cowl, that uses Landscape, knitted on size 9 US circular needles. The diamonds within stripes effect is created with a slip stitch. The pattern is available right over HERE .
