Construction Site Cowl
Construction site is a cute & squashy striped cowl featuring a built in I-cord-edge on one side and an applied garter stitch edge with bobbles and – if chosen – some basic embroidery.
The colors were inspired by a construction site nearby my house – thus the name. The finished cowl reminds me of the Baltic Sea and an old fashioned candy store.
