Description

Who doesn’t love an accessory that gets noticed? Pieces such as this two-tone retro patterned cowl are terrific for changing up the day-to-day attitude of that one good winter coat, so that your look never gets tired. With a bold textured pattern that’s a snap to knit, this cushy cowl in two sizes (S/L) also packs a big payoff in the warmth department. Worked completely in the round, it’s a no stress way to experiment with color knitting. An extremely portable project as well, it works up quickly for a go-to gift that’ll be the envy of your holiday swap.
