Pleated stitches and cables give this textured cowl interest and depth, and make it suitable for men or women. Adventurous knitters will find the steganography stitch fascinating, the electrophoresis panel a relaxing interlude, and the histology engaging enough to hold interest. The stunning Bloodstain fingering yarn from The Homestead Hobbyist’s Crime Scene collection has gorgeous layers of color on a wonderfully unusual fiber mix and gives this cowl warmth without adding weight.
