One Skein Projects with Tranquility

Just finished: the Forest Glade Cowl in Tranquility by TSC Artyarns! As you may recall, I recently found this free pattern by Natural Suburbia (it’s also available on Ravelry). Here are some pictures of the original project, which really show off the stitch well:
