Dripstones Cowl is a seamless unisex cowl/neckwarmer worked from bottom to top. It begins with 2x2 ribbing then continues with 2 sets of cables which together give the impression of dripstones forming in a damp, remote cave. The ribbing is repeated at the top.
Choose from 3 sizes: close-fitting S, which is perfect for those who don’t get along with scarves; snug M, which can be worn together with your favorite jacket during cold Fall or Winter nights, and last but not least wide L, which is perfect to throw over your coat. The cowl’s trapezoid shape is created by using different needle sizes.
