This listing is for a KNITTING PATTERN PDF file that will be available for automatic download upon completion of purchase.
Icy blue frost laced across glass on a cool, crisp, still morning inspired these face-framing cables that mimic traces of frost winding across a windowpane. Optional short-row shaping transforms this cowl into a piece that can be worn over the head as a hood or draped around the neck with a few extra layers of warmth. As an alternative, leave out the shaping for a traditional style cowl and a simple, statement piece.
