Woodleaf Cowl

On Sale
Added to cart
Woodleaf is a cozy cowl that’s perfect for snuggling into on chilly fall hikes in the forest. It draws its inspiration from twining leaves and mossy branches overhead and the mottled sunlight that wends among them to make its way to the forest floor.

Woodleaf is knit from Colorista Basique Worsted in the varied greens and blues of the Peacock in the Barnyard colorway. It is worked in the round, alternating between panels of climbing vines and moss stitch, and features rolled edges at the top and bottom that are knit closed as the piece is worked. It could easily be turned into a more generous cowl or infinity scarf by working extra panel repeats. In the original size, the cowl is a one-skein project in many yarns.
