Create a piece as unique as you are with this ingenious cowl worked in a luscious blend of merino and silk. Use buttons, beads, or sequins to showcase the cleverness of the Moebius construction and the reversible-yet-different stitch pattern. With options for 2 different yarn weights and as much or as little embellishment as you like, you’ll end up with a perfectly personal cowl every time.
