This beautiful pom crochet mandala cake neck warmer is made with a Mandela yarn cake. Light weight and changes the color for you creating a really cute and warm cowl that you can wear all day without it becoming too hot.
There is a lot of texture here to keep it looking interesting following this simple pattern. The pom pom trim is what I really love about it adding a girly feel to the whole piece.
