This colorwork cowl combines a couple of our favorite things: color and cashmere. Our Elmer and Elmer Tweed Fingering bases shine in this simple stranded pattern -- and just wait until you feel the fabric! We think you’ll really enjoy the shaping built into this piece too -- it falls into a cozy cashmere-forward “puddle” around your neck.
