From designer Anne Kuo Lukito:
A cozy, fluffy cowl is my go-to accessory for almost any weather. When I design accessories like shawls and cowls, I always try to keep the reversibility of such garments in mind. For Barton Springs, I designed a well-defined reversible stitch pattern so that it looks great no matter how you style your cowl. There is no real "wrong side." Twisted stitches in the pattern allow stitches to really stand out and pop, particularly when worked in a looser gauge, because the twists lock the stitches in place after stretching and blocking, showing off the ribbed columns.
