The bleak tundra has its own stark
beauty: colors subtle in hue and variation; textures of stone and rock; shapes
formed by frost and minimal vegetation. Yet life survives and endures, even in
this harshest of environments.
Tundra cowl both warms
and adorns the shoulders, neck, and head. Worked from the bottom up, it can be
adjusted in length. Work it as a simple rolled neck cowl. Or knit the neck and
head portion to an extreme length—as pictured here—for a richly folded cowl.
The sample pictured is knit with Noro Silk Garden,
45% silk, 45% kid mohair, 10% lamb’s wool, (100 m. per 50 g. ball), color No.
