This little snack of a cowl is an ode to Irish designer Orla Kiely’s iconic leaf design. Knit in sport weight wool, the vining stitch pattern creates a dense fabric that stands up nicely for just a touch of warmth and pop of pattern! It’s a quick, addictive, and highly customizable knit – perfect for gifting!
