This cowl was inspired from the winds and the weather that come and go from the west. Our homestead sits on vast amounts of open land that allows for breathtaking views from all around. When the weather rolls in, the first thing I go for are my woolen hand knits. Warm and engulfing, Westward will keep you warm through those blustery days.
