Color Therapy Cowl

When we received the Kureopatora in January, we all kind of fell in love with it. So soft for Noro, and the colors and yardage are quite impressive. I keep thinking I need a striped scarf, but Sally went all cowl with this one.
She was inspired by Adrienne's Noromania Blanket that sososo many of y'all are working on. She finished her blanket awhile back, and was clearly missing the gartery goodness. Her new Color Therapy Cowl solved that problem! She used colors 1001 and 1011 to make this cozy colorful cowl. Look how pretty. Come choose your two favorites and cast on!
