This cowl is named for the hedgerow bounty we would bring home from our weekend excursions. My Mom would cook the berries into a delicious jam that could sparkle just as red as the raspberries beckoning between the green leaves, or be dark and jewel toned when there were more blackberries in the mix.
Worked entirely in Mosaic, and slipped stitch colorwork technique, you will ever only have to use one color at a time, making this the perfect and easy intro to working with two colors!
Wear this cowl open like a long scarf or wrap it twice for more warmth. With all the different ways to button it and wear it, it won’t get boring and will adapt to almost any temperature!
Well funny you asked, 😉 here is the matching hat to use any leftover yarn: available here: Hedgerow Jam hat
