Hello friends. Lorene from Cre8tion Crochet here for one final post in the November CAL. If you are here today it means that you are doing the optional split neck cowl collar. I love the way this collar looks on this sweater.
This CAL has been so much fun! I've loved seeing everyone's designs so far. Please continue to upload your pictures to our Facebook group and our projects page on Ravelry.
I've enjoyed spending time with you this month. You can stay up to date on all my new pattern releases by subscribing to my newsletter HERE. PS, you'll get a promo code for one premium Cre8tion Crochet original when you do.
