My mother-in-law Barbara loved the mountains. She spent many a day at our family cabin. The cabin sits in a forested area along side a beautiful lake. It was her little piece of paradise. The stitch pattern I selected for her cowl reminds me of the trees and mountains that surround the cabin. The cowl is knit flat and then twisted and joined into a mobius. Wear it long, wound around your neck or over your shoulders. I'll be wearing mine every time I'm at the cabin, and I'll be remembering Barbara.
