How easy is this pattern?!! The yarn makes all the difference. It will be a nice addition to any outfit. You can match it to an existing outfit or your outer garment. I wear cowls inside since it can get chilly and is an additional protection for your neck. This will be simple and lovely. I know I will get requests for this pattern. Thank you.
