Shawl Collared Cowl

Shawl Collared Cowl by Alana Dakos
This is a cozy cowl made with Misti Alpaca Chunky. The yarn was fabulous to work with but definitely made for colder climates...very, very warm! Great as an accessory to a blouse or to snuggle up with under your coat!

Sneakin' a kiss to Mommy!

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Length: approx 26.5 inches from end to end after blocking Width: measures approx 10 inches at deepest point of center including unfolded collar.
