Tressie is a cowl knitted in the round that is just perfect for keeping your neck cozy. Unlike a scarf, Tressie will always remain in place and is ever so stylish. The cowl features a spiral pattern in the center section with seed stitch on the top and bottom. It is 100% reversible, so you can wear Tressie straight up or turned down. Style the cowl with your coat or as an accessory with your favorite sweater. Use either a dk or light worsted: Blue sample knit out of Madelinetosh Tosh DK in color Bloomsbury (225 yards/206 meters; 100% superwash merino wool) Brown and cream samples knit out of Knit Picks Swish Tonal Worsted in colors Kindling and Pearlescent (220 yards/201 meters; 100% superwash merino wool) Want a matching hat?
