Poplar Ridge Cowlette

The Poplar Ridge Cowlette takes a basic stitch pattern and turns into a gorgeous cold weather accessory. 



This pattern is great for beginners! It features simple pattern repeats and a stitch that goes just beyond the basics.

It calls for five gradient colors and pairs perfectly with the Premier Yarns D.I.Y. Gradient yarns. Check out my review of this yarn HERE.


Best part: It can be worn by Toddlers and Plus sized adults too! One size fits most...and it's easily adjustable!
