Lavender Ice Cowl
This pretty kerchief style cowl pattern is a great way to add a pop of color to your outfit. The Lavender Ice Cowl is knit with a beautiful warm plum shade, perfect for bringing out the rosy color of your cheeks on a cold day. Unlike other cowl knitting patterns, this one isn't big and bulky, so you can wear it with almost anything. This knit cowl pattern is fitted and chic enough to layer over a blazer, yet cozy and warm enough to put on under a jacket.
