The Foehn winds are a type of dry down-slope wind that occurs in the lee (downwind side) of a mountain range. They are warm winds that can raise temperatures by as much as 30 °C (54 °F) in just a matter of hours.

Just as this cowl: a simple garter stitch pattern creates a warm and reversible fabric, perfect for those chilly fall and winter days. The snood is a little asymmetric, to get a modern design, and the chevron pattern in the middle is reminding a gust of wind.

This is a very flexible pattern, as the size is fully adaptable to your wishes - you just need to choose as you’re knitting it.
