Fossetta Cowl & Hat

April23

Fossetta Cowl and Hat in Lang Yarns Yak

Wrap your neck is cushiony warmth!  The dimpled fabric of the cowl, combined with the insulating properties of the camel and yak fibers used in the samples, ensure you will stay toasty warm during even the coldest of days.

Although the look of this stitch pattern is quite different on each side, both the “right side” and the “wrong side” are very attractive. In the photo of the blue cowl worn with the matching hat, the reverse side of the fabric is shown.

P.S. Fossetta means “dimple” in Italian.
