The wilderness of British Columbia features a myriad of towering peaks and rugged terrain. DESCENT features textured panels that were inspired by alpine rock fields, complemented by panels of slipped stitches. This pattern was inspired by exploring the backcountry, getting lost in the landscape, and the journey of the climb.

This pattern has been tech edited by Nicola Hodges (@tinyislandtextiles) and thoroughly tested.

This cowl is designed to match the ASCENT hat. Both can be purchased as a package for $6.00 - no code necessary. Discount is also applied if you purchased either pattern previously.
