“Shaped for extra coziness.”

The vertical lines of cable-like twists in the Vineyard Cowl remind us of rows of grapevines meeting in the distance, converging as the cowl narrows at the top.

Knit in the round using the super-soft Blue Sky Fibers Baby Alpaca, this cowl tucks nicely inside a jacket or dresses up a basic tee with jeans. And the softness of Baby Alpaca is just where you want it, draped around your neck!

With a simple pattern that’s quickly ‘readable’, a delightfully simple combination of slipped stitches and yarn-overs create the stitch pattern (no cable needles required!). Easy, gradual decreasing provides shaping for a little extra warmth around your neck.
