If its cold and blustery outside, the Alpine Cowl might be the perfect addition to your winter wardrobe. The exterior of this cozy accessory features a traditional stranded color work motif that offers a sophisticated style. The lining begins with a simple knit and purl pattern which adds a little texture to the design.
The deceptively simple construction is one continuous knitted tube that is folded, hemmed and seamed using a three needle bind off. The end result is a winter accessory that’s sure to turn heads in the best possible way.
Cowl pictured here is knitted in Ikigai Fiber, Chibi Paka Chunky, “Rose”, “Curry”, and “Bumblebee”
