Knit in the round from end to end, this bulky cowl has alternating panels of squishy texture and stripes. The design was inspired by the beautiful green moss and light coming through tree branches in the forests of British Columbia. Warm, textured, and enjoyable to knit, DAWSONIA will keep you warm and inspired on your travels.
