Fall is here, and for Southern Ontario, that means apple orchards, pumpkin patches, and changing leaves on the Maple trees! I love this time of year so much. The mornings that start cool and crisp, and give way to warm and sunny afternoons.
I designed the Maple Hills Cowl with the colour of Fall, a beautiful and rich burgundy! This free crochet pattern is made with Premier Yarns Anti Pilling, a superior anti-pilling yarn that I love. This line has a vast range of colors and an ultra soft texture!
Premier’s Anti-Pilling fiber is specially formulated to resist pilling over time. When pills do form, they are removed through the simple process of machine washing. No picking, no shaving, just toss in the wash and it comes out looking like new, wash after wash.
