knit cowl pattern free

Today is independence day of Estonia. So, another party 🙂

This cowl pattern have been waiting for publishing quite some time. Why? Because I don’t know how to take pictures of red…

I know how it sounds, but I just can’t handle red. It’ll never come out the way I want it…

So, today is the day that I decided that I don’t care.

OK. I care. But not so much that I won’t publish it.

      You’re welcome 🙂 At first I thought that red is too much of a color, but it’s quite nice 😀
