Vanilla Marshmallow Chunky Cowl

The Vanilla Marshmallow Chunky Cowl is a super cozy and squishy project that uses a combination of basic stitches and post stitches for maximum texture.  Beautiful striping shows off the stitch pattern and a button closure gives the wearer maximum adjustability.  Chunky yarn and a large hook make this an excellent, on-trend candidate for the perfect project to gift as well!
