Shoulder Cozy Using Sirdar Alpine
We’ve called it a capelet. And a poncho. And a cowl. With all its versatility, we love our Shoulder Cozy’s wide, bell-like shape—it fits comfortably around your shoulders and is generously squishy when scrunched up around your neck!
This version of our Shoulder Cozy, knit in faux fur Sirdar Alpine, is an updated nod to gorgeous, vintage accessories. Alpine is a bulky-weight yarn that’s akin to a fringed ribbon crafted entirely in polyester. Superbly soft and supremely pettable, this yarn is machine washable—perfect for this retro-inspired cozy!
Small/Medium: Approx. 16"/41cm long when flat; fits up to 56"/142cm around shoulders (bust+arms).
Large/Extra Large: Approx. 18"/46cm long when flat; fits up to 60"/152cm around shoulders (bust+arms).
Directions are given for Small/Medium; Large/Extra Large in parentheses.
