This cowl feels like heaven and is a dream to wear! Spoil yourself & indulge with this fun knit worked in luxurious yarn. A quick & fulfilling pattern using only 200yds, with a reversible ribbed inside, Lansbury is sure to be a fave accessory year round.

Named for the lovely Angela Lansbury & her long time show Murder, She Wrote, this cowl represents all the twists & turns involved in solving a good mystery. I have fond memories of curling up watching Angela Lansbury daily with my Omi while knitting & crocheting alongside her. I still tune in regularly with reruns on netflix with my favorite tea and some twist filled knitting.
