Quaking Aspen Cowl
This pattern was originally published as part of the Twisted’s Cowl Club in October 2013.
Whenever I head up into the alpine, I scan the landscape for green and silver leaves, shimmering in the wind. And I strain my ears to pick out the soft rustling of nature’s wind chimes. Like the aspen tree, this cowl has a simple beauty that’s sure to make you smile.
