Meet the Samples :: Cowl Season

Arctic Circle Cowl / Antonia Shankland / The Fibre Company Tundra / Tamarack

Cowls seem to be the accessory of the season; we’re seeing them everywhere!  Easy to wear, cowls offer warmth and style without the loose ends of a scarf to worry about.  We love the little pop of color a cowl can add to a neutral winter coat, and sometimes even leave them on all day!

The smaller scale of a cowl provides an opportunity to play with a new technique, stitch pattern, or luxury yarn. As knitters and crocheters we have the ability to create our own accessories, just the way we like them.  What could be better than that?

Here are some of our favorite samples for your viewing pleasure.  Short, long, thick, thin, there’s infinite variety when it comes to choosing your cowl style.
