AC and CNC Mystery Cowl CAL – Part 1

Hi, and welcome to Part 1 of the AC and CNC Mystery Cowl CAL. The first part works up quick and easy, and only consists of 5 rounds. But my favorite part so far is the adorable beads that pop out at you. I could just keep going with this pattern, but we have a few other stitch patterns to add. I hope you’ll enjoy this cal as much as I am.

  1. When I try to save or print this piece, I only get the right-hand side of the page. Can you help me figure out what to do?

    1. Hi, Thanks for letting me know. I’ve installed the green print-friendly button, which now appears below the pattern. It should let you print and or save a clean copy to your computer. Let me know if you still have problems with it. Thanks 🙂
