Superior Cowl

 

Although delicate and light, the Superior Cowl is incredibly warm.  The design is very versatile, in how it can be worn. Wrap it twice around your neck for a close fitted cowl. Pull it up as a hood to cover the head or wear it loosely. The cowl takes only one ball of a very luxurious yarn. When the yarn is this stunning a simple pattern is needed to display its beauty. This simple design is fast and fun to knit on larger needles than this very fine yarn regularly calls for.
