Cowl in Encore Boucle

Ok, we all agree that the Cowl is this year’s scarf.  Whether long or short- it is indeed a fast project for this Holiday’s gift giving.  I have talked about the ultimate yarn for cowls- Baby Alpaca Grande.  But for those on a limited budget- I have an idea:  Use a less expensive, but interesting yarn.  Here is a quickie pattern using 1 ball of Encore Boucle.  This member of the Encore family of fine yarns will give you dazzling colors and texture at a very low price.

Here Nancy, a customer at my LYS, sports a cowl she whipped up in an evening.
