The Fireheart cowl, knit in Aran weight yarn, is a warm and cozy cold weather cowl. Featuring a slip stitch design pattern for a soft and flexible bottom hem, paired with my ultimate favorite stitch - herringbone stitch for ultimate warmth. Scrunch and slouch the cowl or let it fold over to reveal the back side of the herringbone stitch which is equally as gorgeous as the front. Choose from two sizes available: standard or relaxed.
