FO: Road to Yesterday

I named this cowl Road to Yesterday because it looks like a cowl from Victorian era. The name is also actually the title of Lucy Maud Montgomery's short story book. That is why I named the yarns for the kit: A Dream Come True, A Commonplace Woman, The Twins Pretend, The Cheated Child, and Fool's Errand. Those are the titles of the short stories.

I made 2 versions, the long cowl using fingering weight yarn and short cowl using DK weight yarn. I love both... but the DK one is my favorite.

Actually I made the fingering weight one end of 2015, but it hibernate for 1 year before I finally published it end of last year.

Here are the long cowl using fingering weight yarn modeled by me.
