Construction: This striped cowl pattern is designed to wrap twice around your neck as a cozy fall accessory. The simple striping with vertical lines created with slipped stitches shows off the textured Seda Rustica yarn. An suggested alternative to Seda Rustica is Berrocco Ultra Alpaca, which has a fuzzy softness and stripes up really nicely.
