Keep warm and cozy in this beautiful Dark Purple Tweed Aran-knit cowl. Soft and rich, this dark violet cowl adds luxury to your wardrobe. Knit in superfine Merino wool, alpaca and Donegal tweed, this cowl looks fantastic with outerwear or as an accessory to dress up an every day blouse.

This cowl is hand-knit by Fiona in the Forest Park Cowl pattern by Liz Abinante, using Knit Picks, City Tweed DK yarn. This yarn is incredible to knit, with a wonderful amount of loft and texture, and she’ll be using it again in other pieces.  The pattern is a striking blend of simple antler and spiral cables with purls for edging, which creates a simple ladder effect in between the cables.  What results feels like something out of a storybook with very little fuss in the design.  The pattern is easy to follow and knits up an enchanting accessory piece.
