Cloud Gathering Cowl




The Cloud Gathering Cowl combines cozy texture with three seasons of functional wear. Cinch it at the top with the i-cord drawstring for maximum warmth in any weather or drape it around the shoulders and neck for a gentle hug. Bespoke DK from Clinton Hill Cashmere creates a lightweight and pillowy soft fabric. Choose a solid or mostly solid colorway of DK-weight yarn to let the subtle texture shine.

The cowl is worked in one piece in the round. Each of the ribbed hems are folded in half, with a stockinette surface on the inside of the cowl and a whipstitch finish to hold the hem in place. The whipstitch secures each of the cast-on and bound-off edges to the inside of the cowl. The i-cord drawstring is threaded through the upper hem after finishing to make the cowl adjustable.
