Everyone loves a great self-striping yarn – but sometimes you want more than plain stockinette! Enter the Glorien cowl – a light sport-weight cowl perfect for cool Fall or chilly Spring days. Glorien’s slipped-stitch and subtle cable pattern manages to both interrupt AND preserve self-striping yarn. Bonus: Glorien also looks great in solids, semi-solids, variegated, and gradients!
