North is a unisex cowl that combines herringbone stich with a robust 2x2 rib. It is knitted in the round, in shape of a tube and then joined together using kitchener stich.

This design gives North a very strong and at the same time handsome look. The material and construction of the cowl make it very cozy and super warm - made to beat wind and snow.
