Dancing Fireflies Cowl
Fireflies dancing around, hidden from sight, twisting intricate cables in their rhythm, driven to warm the wearer … secretly celebrating with their dance, onwards to warm another. They softly, yet silently swirl around, adding height to the cowl and their intricate wishes of warmth.
Dancing Fireflies Cowl is worked from the top down in the round. Charted and written instructions. US and metric measurements.
The cowl has a relatively high height to add more warmth: it drapes onto itself so that air can get trapped within the layers to provide more insulated warmth.
