Warm and squishy with stripes, perfectly interrupted with a little spike stitch pattern. This is the perfect accessory to throw on and feel just a little cosier and a little more put together all at the same time. Play with colour for bolder looks.
The cowl is worked in the round in a continuous spiral, (so ends do not need dealing with - they hide inside) and then seamed shut at the end.
Not a pattern for those who need an early night as it has a real “just one more stripe” addictive quality to it.
