The perfect accessory for winter and in-between seasons. The snuggly cowl / snood pattern sits over the shoulders with a high funnel neck and small pleats at the shoulders to create a nice drape and fit. It can be made in 4 different versions, all of which are printed on the pattern and fully explained in the instruction booklet. The pattern works in either knitted or woven fabrics and gives a structured shape with thicker fabrics or a more draped effect with lighter weight fabrics.
