Imagine wrapping the laces of your point shoes around your ankles. You elegantly step up to the barre and take first position practicing for your performance of Swan Lake.

As you finish you take a bow and open your eyes. A rosy cheek toddler waves madly at you as they toss cereal on the floor. Well, the dream was awesome while it lasted. But, now you can slip on your dreamy prima ballerina cowl and escape anytime you want!

The faux cables in the design were inspired by the ribbons ties on pointe shoes while the yarn over lace mirrors the clean lines and simple grace of a ballerina.

This cowl is a quick knit and perfect for that luxury skein of yarn you just want to pet all day long. It can be worn long and lovely or wrapped doubled to hug your neck.
