Tapered Cowl and Fingerless Mitts
A trapezoidal cable and rib cowl worked seamlessly in rib and tapered with decreases for the neck.
Matching fingerless mitts in cable rib pattern fit the hands snuggly and warmly.
One Size Fits All Adults
Cowl: 8 ½”, (12) long, 22” circumference at neck (moderately stretched), 28” circumference at widest part (slightly stretched)
Mitts (when worn): 7.2” circumference, 6 ½” long
(the mitts are meant to fit snuggly, so the length and width will be different when worn versus not worn)
