Summer Fling Cowl

I have been working all week on this pattern. This is a pattern that has taken on a lot of different forms from what it is today.


I wanted a cowl that had different textures. A lace part and a solid part. I started with the white lace part. Then I cut a t-shirt into a long strip and sewed it up. It did not look the way I wanted it. I then took the cowl apart and added a blue lace panel next to the white lace panel. Then I thought to myself what if I combined the white and blue together to make the solid piece. At that, I found the look I was looking for.
