Pattern Description:

Growing up in Santa Cruz, Cowell Beach is where I tried to learn to surf as a teenager. As an adult, my husband and I went for a beautiful 4 mile walk here the day after we got married, and one of the first places we took our son after he was born, for a cool stroll in the ocean breeze of summer to escape the astounding June heat of our home, 20 miles away.

Surfers never-ending, and with the scenic lighthouse on the point, this beach holds a lot of memories, and, I am sure, more to come. Even in the winter, I swear that you can hear the tourists enjoying the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, just beyond the wooden pier.
As a tribute to one of my favorite places, I have created this cowl, with continuous crashing waves of its own.
