Russian Rose Knit Cowl

Russian Rose Knit Cowl

We dare you to find something cozier. This Russian Rose Knit Cowl is beautiful, with its exquisite rose embellishment, and also the warmest thing from here to the Siberian desert. You'll thank yourself for knitting this when the fluffy inside transports you to a tropical oasis somewhere far away. You can also learn how to knit flowers into your knitting patterns with this easy tutorial, as it features a large bundle of pink roses as a focal point. You'd better get knitting; your neck isn't getting any warmer.

11 skeins of yarn for a cowl? Seems unlikely.

This is gorgeous! I have never done the duplicate stitch but I have embroidered a lot. The tutorial makes it look really easy but I worry I will pull too snug. Does anyone with experience have any additional advice to the video? Thanks
