KOKO COWL

ココ (Japanese) - here

The dimensional textured fabric that makes up this entire cowl is what makes this design both drapey and voluminous. The shifting slip stitch pattern combined with 3 colors of stripes turns this into a fun knit and enhances an unusual surface look. Turned up hems form the borders for this cowl, while one of them, if desired, can be used as a drawstring casing to create a cinch for a more snug effect.

KOKO cowl has a cousin shawl/wrap design named KOKO. See it here!
