Welcome designer Paula Berman to the Slow Yarn Crawl family! Winemakers use the term ‘terroir’ to express how the terrain, microclimate and soil in a location shape its wines. Like our world-class wines, this cowl is designed to evoke the forests and terrain of the Pacific NW.
This fabulous cowl by Paula is fun and a bit of a challenge to knit. With centered double increases, centered double decreases, knit through the back loop, and “appearing stitches” this cowl will definitely keep your interest, while still being a relatively quick knit.
