The Finding Your Way Cowl is inspired by labyrinth gardens. As a child I loved to get lost in those gardens, trying to find my way to the center. Usually, a lookout tower nestled in there, made it all worth it. Breathtaking views over the hedges and another chance to puzzle my route back out. If you like sets, you can combine this cowl with the Finding Your Way Mittens which are available in my Ravelry and Etsy shops.
