Amica Cowl and Fingerless Gloves


Hello Friends!

There is a fresh layer of snow on the ground but the birds are singing promising that spring is on the way. So in the spirit of spring Brownie Knits and I are releasing our spring collaboration today - the Amica Cowl and Fingerless gloves.

This light and cozy set of accessories is our first crochet collaboration together. And the wonderful thing about crochet is - these items are sooo quick to work up!



Worked in the round from the top down the Amica Cowl features the window pane and shell stitches. You can work this cowl in one, two or four colors.



The mitts are worked in the round from the bottom up using the window pane and shell stitches - and the miracle of these mitts are the fact that the shell stitch automatically makes the thumb gusset! They are so quick and fun to crochet!
