The perfect cowl for a snowy day — ethereal and delicate with the warmth of mohair that can be worn layered around chilly necks or shoulders.

Named after Lind, the frosty opera singer who stole
Hans Christian Anderson’s heart and was the inspiration behind his Snow Queen. Knit on large needles, this cowl works up fast to take full advantage of the yarn’s lofty character and emulates the flurry of flakes in the air.
