This regal, over-sized cowl is both elegant and practical, perfect for wearing when sauntering about the grounds. Wearable and versatile, it can serve as a capelet on its own or be worn close to the neck under a jacket or coat.
Its subtly flared shaping is achieved by changing needle sizes as you work from the Lower Border up to the Collar. Choose your favorite colours to knit your own signature capelet/cowl!
