Dotty Tunisian Cowl
This cowl/headband is worked in Lily’s unique take on the double ended, circular Tunisian technique. It works up quickly on a large hook, and there are no floats to be found anywhere in the colorwork! Lily debuted this technique in her Mesa Pullover (Interweave Crochet Winter 2010) and demonstrates it in her Two-Color Tunisian in the Round video.
