2019 is upon us and I am so excited for new beginnings and the fresh start that the new year brings. One of my goals for the year is to finally add all the patterns I’ve been working on over the last year. We had our fourth baby last year, so I have been pretty MIA from the blog lately. That’s about to change! Starting off with my new Winter Dreams Cowl crochet pattern! This cowl works up pretty fast once you get going. Don’t forget to read the notes before you get started, and as always, shoot me a comment below if you have any questions! Happy Crocheting!
