Tapered Cowl Using String Blossom
The long, slow shaping of this cowl begins with a wider base that slips as far over one or both shoulders as the circumference allows, while the narrower top end fills in the neck to keep you beautifully cozy.
We knit sport-weight String Blossom on slightly smaller needles for dense, luxurious folds. A lush, half-and-half blend of cashmere and silk, Blossom’s tight, high quality twist makes it a dream on your needles. It simply overflows with next-to-the-skin softness—you’ll want to keep this cowl very, very close.
Grab the pattern below and choose a color from our selection of favorite shades of Blossom; you'll need 4 skeins. If you want to see all the colors available, just head over to the String Blossom page.
