Old Pine is a cozy, textured cowl, perfect for pairing two beautiful skeins of hand dyed yarn. The combination of simple stockinette, purl ridges and yarn overs create a stunning, rippled effect. Twisted rib brings the top in for a closer fit while the rippled stitch pattern drapes warmly and comfortably. With endless colour pairings Old Pine is a versatile wardrobe staple for Spring, Autumn and Winter.
