Patterned Squares Cowl – A Zoom Loom Project

Just in time for the winter weather, we have a cozy patterned cowl designed and woven by John Mullarkey.

The cowl uses just fourteen squares. Seven are plain weave, and the other seven use a diamond pattern.  A solid, or semi-solid, highly-spun yarn will show off the pattern. Our instructions include written directions as well as a chart to help you weave the diamonds, and it’s easier (and more fun!) than you might think.
