The shapes water naturally freezes in as it meets a windowpane or pushes up through clay are both beautiful and fascinating: spiky edges combine into gorgeous swirling patterns. Frostblossom is the perfect cowl for keeping you warm while admiring the beauty winter has to offer! The cowl starts and ends with stockinette facings–turning these under and sewing them to the back results in a tidy, slightly flared edge, allowing the front of the cowl to consist entirely of the allover stranded design.
