Snowfield features an oversize motif with an interesting texture thanks to the Suri alpaca. The colourwork is knitted in the round, then both ends are grafted together using the Russian grafting technique. The cowl is reversible: the inside features the same design, but with reversed colours which creates two looks in one.
