The Snow Bunny Cowl [free pattern]

The Snow Bunny Cowl

Happy New Year Everyone!!

I hope you all enjoyed your family and friends throughout the holiday season and started your new year off to a great start. I’m coming to you all with a new blog post and a free pattern!!

It’s freezing here in Michigan where I live and with the polar vortex that’s hitting us this week, we’re in need of warm chunky hats and scarves. The rest of the US isn’t getting a break from this crazy weather either. So I thought I’d make something that was super simple, beginner friendly and super warm and chunky and that’s how the Snow Bunny Cowl was born.

If you want to be warm and cozy here’s the pattern:
