I love this version. I think I want to keep it, but I want to give it to Kali.
I spent the better part of two days figuring out how to go from the edging to the body. I must have ripped it out at least 5 times, and a few times I already crocheted 3 rows before ripping it again. It was so worth it.
This version also features shaping, which shows off the edging that much better. Without shaping, the cowl would have drooped right over the edging, covering up the lace. That was the main problem I had with the first Kali cowl.
