Traveler is available as part of Jared Flood’s first print book, WOOLENS, available at brooklyntweed.com.

Nothing is cozier about the neck than a cowl of densely worked cables in soft wool. Traveler gathers small cables into large rope motifs to give the fabric added depth, and the cartridge rib of the edging flows between the cables for pleasing continuity. Hidden decreases shape the cowl into a gentle funnel for a superior fit. Worked from a chart in four skeins of Shelter, this handsome accessory is sure to be a winter favorite.
