This wonderfully graceful cowl takes its name from an active stratovolcano in Chile. The hints of color reveal themselves in peaks and glimpses when the cowl is worn doubled around the neck. Knitted in the round with no seams and only two rounds of purl stitches, Melimoyu is great for smooth “mindless” knitting with just enough detail with the stranded borders to add interest. A wonderful classy accessory to add to a cool climate wardrobe.
