Pixel Cowl is big, colorful, dense & warm. Knit with four colors in stranded patterning, the foreground colors exchange with background colors creating a whimsical color blocking effect.

Thick & structured, Pixel Cowl envelops the face and neck in soft, vibrantly colorful merino wool. It is both a statement piece & a functional necessity for winter sub-zero temperatures. Cocoon yourself in color!

With bulky yarn on large needles, this enormous cowl knits up quickly in the round. The stranding is hidden on the inside, making it double layered and doubly warm. The two ends are grafted together at the end, making a giant loop that wraps comfortably twice around the neck.
