Golden rolling hills dotted with red. A long path winding through the fields. A feel of summer, warm and abundant. This is what poppies remind me of. I love poppies. They look frail with their thin translucent petals. Yet they stand tall in the wheat fields, adding a touch of colour to an otherwise monochrome landscape. The Poppy Path cowl is inspired by these images.
The cowl starts with a lacy yarn-over edging and continues with an all-over lace pattern winding its way up the cowl. Curves flow into one another to form an organic pattern.
The Poppy Path cowl will be your perfect ally for those nice summer evenings and will for sure add a touch of sophistication to your outfit.
