We loved the original cowl so much, we wanted it in more colors! Knit the rainbow-colored skulls on a white background to turn heads wherever you go, or make a subtler statement with the gray background. These new colorways come in Crystal Palace Allegro Aran, a two-ply yarn, and Mochi Plus, a self-striping single-ply yarn. Both yarns are wonderfully soft and can be machine-washed on gentle cycle.

5 stars. Lovey yarn, well written pattern
Though I am not a fan of sugar skulls myself, my daughter is...she chose the gray cowl. The kit arrived with a full magazine that contained the pattern. Honestly, I wouldn't have started the project based on the picture in the magazine. I found it too trendy and almost cheap looking. The muted tones of the kit create a subtle pattern and the skulls don't jump out at you. awesome it was to get a full agazine with many other patterns and articles. I definitely will order through here in the future! Review by Constance (Posted on 1/12/2017)
