Like many journeys, this cowl starts out one way and takes a turn in the middle to end up with something that wasn’t quite like what you started with but much more than what you’d hoped to get. It starts innocently enough, like any traditional top down triangle shawl, but then joins the ends together to start working in the round like a cowl. The end product wears like a hybrid of both—style and substance, warmth and glam. It’s just the thing for any explorer, whether out on the mountains or snug in her home.
