This cowl is available for individual purchase or as a part of and e-book bundle that included two different hats and mittens.

The Vandiver Cowl was inspired by the geometric triangles and colors of a quilt. The color blocking of two contrasting shades of half square triangles are rotated and reflected to create a variation on a traditional “flying geese” pattern.
Six colors are used and can either compliment or contrast to give the illusion of shadow striping. It is knitted in a tube and seamed together to form a cozy neck warmer. This silouette shows off the stranded color work and also hides the floats within the cowl.
