The stitch pattern is inspired by the supports of old barns giving this long cowl a squishy texture. The cowl is knit flat and grafted together. The sample uses a single full sized skein of Hudson and 4 Farthing skeins but it would be beautiful in two colors tone on tone & would require 2 full skeins of Hudson.

Finished Measurements: 51”/130cm length before joining by 9”/23cm wide.
