Exclusive Colors - Reno Casino Cowl
The Reno Casino Cowl kit is made using our brand new custom color, Reno Casino, developed just for the Sierra Nevada Yarn Crawl 2020! It's reminiscent of the dark backdrop of a casino floor, dotted with bright, colorful, and flashing lights.
This kit includes one skein each of Reno Casino & Smokestack/Optic in Madelinetosh Tosh DK (sufficient for either the knit or the crochet cowl), and a Ravelry download code for both patterns! Hook and needles are not included. Both cowls are designed by Amy Gunderson.
