The Moonset is a cozy cowl featuring a combination of broken rib for the top and bottom hems mixed with herringbone stitch for a textured throughout, warm & squishy cowl!

Knit with a DK weight tweed yarn, held doubled to make up the equivalent of an Aran or Light Bulky yarn, this cowl plays with color as you transition from one stripe to the next.

To achieve the marled effect as well as for a smooth color transition, you hold two strands of DK yarn together throughout.
