Fitted Yoke Texture Stitch Cowl

Your best defense against the cold. Stylish and eminently practical…

The shaped pentagonal yoke gives a snuggled flat against the body fit to defend against any chill winds that slip through your coat.

The woven texture gives the cowl portion a nice ‘stand-up-on -its-own’ ability to cover your chin and ears but enough flex to squish down into draping folds.

Change the look from fun to fashionable with a single tonal colorway. Looks great with high variegates of all kinds.


Worked bottom up in the round.
Basic lace/texture sts and s2kp.
Looks great with any combination of colorways with some overlap of tones, or worked totally in one colorway.
