Using the simple square pattern of my previous muffler design for Bessie Coleman, the first African-American female to receive a pilot’s license, as a jumping off point, color and texture come together wonderfully to create a cowl that is warm, stylish, and versatile. Worn down, it makes a fashion statement; doubled, it sits nicely at neck and shoulders for maximum chill banishment, especially in an awesome yak-blend yarn. Nothing beats the utility of a great cowl, and I expect Bessie would agree and approve.

I love the muted, yet bold colorplay of these three yak colorways - so autumnal. One could easily go bold with color choices, so pick your particular color pleasure for happiest knitting (in autumn and beyond).
