This cowl and hat pay homage to the columns, ribs and vaulted arches of architecture from the Romanesque period. The vertical, slip-stitch pillars and brick-like garter stitch striping recalls those beautiful buildings and the comfort they bring to those who visit them. The choice of an all- natural yarn (100% wool Epic Yarn or 100% alpaca El Rio) makes this combo warm and cozy.

Choose from two options for this product: Print Pattern (requires shipping), or PDF Download (instant download at checkout).
