Taking its inspiration from the classic Turk’s Head knot, this shoulder wrap features twined “ropes” of cable joined to form an infinite loop. Our All American Collection yarn gives such great stitch definition we just can’t get enough of these cables. This loop is large enough to wear as a shrug or drape it loosely for a luxurious and cozy cowl.
