The Lollipop Guild Cowl & Mittens Knitting Pattern (PDF) by Phibersmith Designs
A little whimsy can keep you warm, and none better than these candy-coated mittens and cowl made with Alpaca Lopi. You read right - soft spun Alpaca blend singles. It’s like knitting with candy floss, and the result is just as soft and sweet. The pattern is simple and quick to knit with polished details that make it stand out… when you need to represent.
