This pattern has been a long time coming. I initially posted a picture of my first Ava Cowl on Instagram in the Fall of 2018. I liked the aesthetic of the cowl however, I just wasn’t happy with it. So I tweaked it and tweaked it. Then, to be honest, I would put it down for a while because I would get distracted and move on to one of my other works in progress. But, thanks to the many people that loved it and messaged me asking me for the pattern, I perservered rather than letting this design disappear into my wip pile.

My initial plan was to use up some of the Bernat Pop that I had in my stash but also to create a pattern that could be done utilizing only one skein of Bernat Pop. Everytime I tweaked something I would end up with too much yarn left over and when I say I want to use one skein, I mean that I want to use as much of that skein as I can and waste as little as possible. If you stick to the gauge, you’ll be able to use the full skein with very little waste – maybe 2 to 3 feet of yarn remaining.

If you’re not wanting to use Bernat Pop, this pattern can be done in your favourite comparable worsted weight yarn as long as you’re meeting gauge. I’ve made this cowl in Blue Chambray and Ebony and Ivory colourways and both turned out amazing. The Ebony and Ivory cowl was a big hit and is actually what inspired my Polar Puff Messy Bun Hat Pattern
