A combination of stripes and herringbone plaid impart decidedly “ivy league” style to this warm and reversible cowl. Beginning with a provisional cast-on, the piece is worked seamlessly in the round and then the ends are grafted together to create a continuous tube of fabric. Its small size is perfect for throwing in your bag; the double layer of warmth created by the fabric guarantees protection from whatever the weather brings. A bit preppy to provide some fanciful humor to your fall wardrobe, this cowl is both practical in its softness and warmth and stylish in design.
