Needs three colors of yarn:

A –Java (brown) - 290 yds
B- Garnet (red) - 175 yds
C- Canyon (orange) - 175 yds

Cowl features flared corrugated ribbed at the bottom that sits nicely on the shoulders, then a long stretch of mosaic knit with a center cable running up the front. Tall enough to pull up over head, with a lovely picot edging to frame the face.

Mosaic design looks like the fiery face of the demon.

Finally, a reason to look forward to winter!
