A lace and cable pattern is worked flat into a scarf-like shape before one side edge is whipstitched for a few inches to form this light, airy cowl. A yarn made with a warm fiber, such as the baby alpaca in this blend, will keep you toasty whether you wear this cowl hanging down or looped around your neck.
