The Forestry Cowl was made with trees in mind. I had the privilege of growing up in the Colorado Wilderness and had access to hills upon hills of trees. Some of my favorite days were spent outside in the forest. This cowl reflects those hills in their prime of life, with the A line construction with short row garter stitch sections. The cowl is perfect for a cozy walk in the woods, maybe crunching some fresh fallen snow under your boots.

A portion of all my designs go to worthy groups. This one is designated for the National Park Foundation to celebrate the National Park Service’s centennial year. They do good work. For more information about National Parks near you, visit
