Retro Roller is a funnel shaped cowl that will cover your collar and collar bones then narrows around the neck and face.
It comes in 2 versions, one is taller and slightly narrower. It narrows to a cylinder which stays up easily around the face to protect it from harsh winds and chilly temperatures. The other version is slightly wider around the base, is not as tall and narrows towards the face without the added cylinder shaping. This one is more comfortable to wear around a chilly office.

The taller version is fantastic for showcasing those gorgeous gradient skeins. Both versions are great for single skeins of hand-dyed yarn. Just pair your favorite gorgeous skein with a high contrast solid background color.

This cowl is easily customizable with tips included for how.
