I can’t exactly tell you why, but I LOVE blackened colors! Which means that Lana Grossa Piuma makes my heart just burst with love! So, of course, it needed a special project! Our Winter Rainbows Hat and Cowl Kit is the perfect quick knit (maybe for the quickly approaching holidays?)! The colors just glide along the single cable and the cowl is just what we all need - a perfect indoor/outdoor cowl - nice and snug so it doesn’t get in the way while going about your day. Or for your inner cowl on those dreaded two-cowl days when you must wear all your knits to keep warm! If you prefer cowls that wrap, you’ll need another skein of Piuma.
