Plenty of warmth, and a lot of style! This cowl has a cheerful collar to warm you. A quick knit, it will make a great gift.

The energy and fun of a zigzag pleases me. Over the ages, all cultures have enjoyed using this motif as a way to embellish, decorate, and entertain. There is an energy which comes from a diagonal line which draws me in, and I become more intrigued as I play with its possibilities.

I named this Sprite for the agile energy associated with the word. Webster says a sprite is an elf or fairy. I’d like to feel that chipper on a cool winter day, and I think this collar may just help that goal!
