Pattern Release: the Scrunchie Carnival

The Scrunchie Carnival pattern set is a great way to use up scrap yarn you have. These work up super quickly and make for great gifts or quick craft fair projects. I love how they came out using different colorways of Lion Brand Ferris Wheel, but then again I'm sure you know how partial I am to the Ferris Wheel line of yarns.

I wanted to design a cute cowl that will not only keep your neck warm when that chilly fall or winter wind picks up, but will also look stylish and garner you a ton of compliments! This cowl is made in the round, with easy row repeats. You can easily adjust the length and width to make it exactly the size you want.
