A Maleficent Cowl

Lion Brand kindly sent me a ball of their new yarn line Landscapes.  ( THANK YOU LION BRAND, feel free to send yarn anytime hehehehe )  WOW is it LOVELY the colors are incredibly vibrant and the yarn is extremely soft.  It's an Acrylic yarn but feels more like a soft blend.

The next row I did just hdc, and the next was sc,sc, 2sc repeat . To give a little flare I did hdc *ch1 sk 1 hdc* and repeated until the end. I worked 2 sc in each ch1 for the ne
