Dripstones Cowl is a seamless unisex cowl/neckwarmer worked from bottom to top. It starts with 2x2 ribbing, then continues with 2 sets of cables which put together give the impression of dripstones forming in some cave.
The cowl can be knitted in 3 sizes: close-fitting S which is perfect for women or men who don’t get along with scarves; snug M which can be worn together with your favorite jacket during cold Fall or Winter nights, and last but not least wide L which is perfect to throw over your coat.
The trapeze shape of cowl is created by using different needle sizes.
Pics showcase size M.
