This cowl (which matches the Temperance Hat and if you put both in your cart now, you save $3!) with jewel tone accents uses a mixture of simple slip stitches and soothing garter stitch.
Inspired by the duality as well as connection between seemingly opposites, the patterns reflect earthbound trees and airborne birds, as symbols for all the myriads of things, separate, but undefined or insignificant without the other.

The Maiden and The Crone, The Queen and the Warrior, Earth and Sky, trees and birds in flight, passive and active, young and wise; bound to the other by their mirror reflection of their opposite.
