The Sunridge Cowl is a modern cowl featuring the fun color changing yarn Abracadabra by Hikoo. This free crochet pattern is easy and works up extremely quick!
I’m excited to be participating in the 2019 Celebrate Mom Blog Hop hosted by Pattern Paradise! Each day in May, a different crochet designer will be featured and share a new free pattern with you! There are lots of fun prizes too, so come join the fun! For the list of designers and all the details, go to this post => 2019 Celebrate Mom Blog Hop & Giveaway
With this blog Hop we are celebrating mom! Growing up we all see our moms as magical beings that can do anything. At least I know I did. I think the Sunridge Cowl is perfect for this blog hop because it is magical just like all moms out there. When you’re inside it’s simple and white but as soon as the sun hits it the cowl changes beautiful colors of purple and blue.
Use the #sunridgecowl and tag me @ktandthesquid when sharing your finished projects.
