Featured Patterns: The Strandlines Cowl (knit) looks awesome in the Sesame yarn.  Simple 2 x 2 ribbing with a unique construction drew me to this pattern.  I used a size 8-24" circular needle and you'll need 2 skeins.   


The Not Knit Cowl (crochet) is a simple pattern using half double crochets. I doubled the amount of stitches to make the cowl longer so I could wrap it twice around my neck.  Ignore the changing of colors in the pattern.  You'll only need 1 skein of Sesame and a size H crochet hook. 


We will send you the pattern free with purchase of a skein or more of Berroco Sesame yarn. Please let me know in the notes section of your cart which pattern you would like to receive.
