Lions Gate - by Tin Can Knits

Vancouver is surrounded by water - bounded by a river, an inlet, and the Pacific. Bridges are one of the city’s defining features. The most famous is the Lion’s Gate: an elegant suspension bridge built in 1938 to link the urban centre with the north shore communities and wilderness beyond.

This architecturally-inspired cowl can be an exuberantly long piece to drape or wrap two or three times around your neck, or a short and luscious little neck warmer.
