If you could turn a (giant) ball of yarn into a wearable hug, this is how you’d do it. Hurricane Ridge works up quickly on chunky yarn and large needles, in an intuitive cable-and-lace pattern that highlights the beautiful hand-dyed colors of Miss Babs’ K2. Designed for the ever-changing weather conditions of the place for which it was named, this is a cowl you can pull up to block the wind, or wear draped around your neck on a warmer day. Hurricane Ridge is worked flat and seamed, so you can adjust the length and fit as you go.

One size. Finished dimensions: 30” / 76 cm circumference by 11.5” / 29 cm tall (unstretched, after blocking) after seaming.
