I’ve been practicing my knitting when I get a chance, and though I’ve discovered that I like knitting hats more than anything, I finally managed to make something other than a hat! Here is my first completed non-hat project, and I thought I would share the pattern with my readers. This Mini Lace Cowl is a great pattern for beginning knitters who would like to expand their skills just a bit.
