You can’t get better than a double thickness colourwork cowl for warmth. It wraps comfortably twice around your neck for a perfect wind block.
This cowl used the wonderful mosaic knitting technique to create it’s colourwork. This allows you to create this wonderful spirial while never knitting with more than one colour. It’s a bit like magic really!
