A woodsy cowl with verdant handknit textures, “Linden Loop” combines botanical lace with a section of twisted rib that makes a perfect kerchief point. The small version is easy to wear and the the perfect size to bring along everywhere, the long version is long enough to be looped twice and has two kerchief points that layer beautifully over one another.

Measurements are for two sizes as follows: SM(LG).
Top circumference: 23½ (47)”
Bottom circumference: 34¼ (68½)”
Height: 9½”
Height at point(s): 13”
