The Fuchsia Snowflakes Cowl features a tessellation snowflake design based on traditional Scandinavian knitting. Modeled after the bold Snowflake Infinity Scarf from February 2017, this cowl sits perfectly around the neck and provides just the right amount of extra warmth and coziness. Knitted as a single layer tube and in the round, this fair isle beauty is guaranteed to be a favorite this season.
