The Diamond Kerchief Cowl features a deep center portion to give the effect of a kerchief-shaped scarf, without the fuss of arranging it. No careful wrapping, no readjustments – it falls gracefully as soon as you pop the cowl over your head. Perfect for your favorite trench, the easy-to-follow lace pattern lends itself beautifully to create a geometric elegance.
