Petrosinella Cowl

On Sale
Added to cart
The romantic ringlets and twists of this cowl are inspired by what I think Rapunzel’s beautiful hair might look like, with curls and braids meandering throughout.

The fairy tale Rapunzel was based on the Italian tale Petrosinella published in 1634 by Giambattista Basile, and is the earliest recorded version of the story.

Worked seamlessly in the round, it uses less than one skein of chunky yarn and, despite its romantic inspiration, is suited to look great on anyone. Choose a soft feminine colored yarn, or something more bold and masculine. Because it is somewhat sturdy it can be worn tall on those crisp, windy days to keep your whole neck warm. But it can also be squished or rolled down low around the neck.
