The Cayuga Cowl is named for the longest of the Finger Lakes near Ithaca, New York. Why? Well, not only is our sample a gorgeous blue, but the unique ribbing pattern increases at the shoulder and creates a long, finger-like motif. It’s like wearing a hug! Plus, it’s the perfect accessory to keep you warm during late autumn or winter strolls by the lake. The collar of the cowl is completely reversible, so you can either fold it or not. Either way, it’s an incredibly cozy accessory.

Cayuga is worked seamlessly in the round from the top down. The collar is worked even, and a series of gradual increases form a unique finger-shaped motif around the shoulders. For a perfectly matched edge, the upper stitches are picked up and bound off using the I-cord method.
