Snowy forests, evergreen trees, aurora borealis, snowflakes and northern magic.

The Emmalin cowl was inspired by my northern heritage and the traditional knitting patterns I grew up with as a child. The old motifs are updated to the modern day with beautiful hand-dyed yarns in contemporary colorways. For the best result choose two colors with high contrast (ie. One very light, one very dark).

Emmalin cowl is the matching cowl to my popular Emmalin hat pattern.
