Ninth Ward cosy is perfect for adding to a summer dress or tee to turn a work-day outfit into something a little more, but easy. I find knitting Tilting Ladders very satisfying — and there are instructions for working the cables with a needle or without.

I love popping a cosy over my shoulders for protection from air conditioning or breezes. More stable than a shawl, a cosy gives different coverage than a cowl. Pairing Ninth Ward Cosy with the French Quarter Tank will create a different kind of sweater-set, or give extra coverage to things you already have.
