Living in Chicago has taught me a lot about cold weather wear, and it’s only December. Bundling up is essential, but sometimes you overheat. This cowl is designed to combat woeful winter predicaments. A double set of buttons lets you button it loose or tight, allowing you to keep warm or stay cool and comfortable.

Loop it over your head to protect ears and necks from chilly breezes, or wear it cape-style under a coat to add an extra layer of warmth.


Small error in row 4 of brioche.

Row 4 should read:
Row 4: k2, •(k2tog, k1), repeat from • to m, slm, k5.
