The Bosque Cowl is inspired by a forest covered by the first snowfall between Autumn and Winter, when some golden leaves still hang on the branches. ‘Bosque’ is the Spanish word for forest.

Bosque is a comfortable cowl and is extra warm because of the two-colour stranded method of knitting. The Bosque Cowl can be easily customised using the duplicate stitch technique to modify the colour of some branches. It was designed to match Bosque hat.
