Bicoastal Cowl

Bicoastal Cowl



Keep your neck warm and cozy in this collar made of Fisherman’s Rib, an easier form of Brioche Stitch. It’s perfect both for chilly Maine mornings and for watching the sunset on a beach in San Francisco. The piece is shaped to lay flat on your shoulders and stand up around your neck to keep you toasty warm. This is a great style for bicyclers, or anyone who doesn’t want long scarves getting in their way.
