The Market Day Cowl combines basic purls, knits and cables with vibrant colors to evoke the beautiful traditional textiles of West Africa. Market Day Cowl is extra-long so it can be looped once for a draped-scarf feel or twice for colder days.

Sample is knit in Wonderland Yarns Mad Hatter and evokes the traditionally indigo-dyed Leppi Cloth from Guinea where my husband and I were Peace Corps Volunteers.
