The High Pines Cowl has a textured stitch pattern that evokes the branching of evergreen trees. The 50-stitch repeat is worked from a large, clear chart. The cowl is worked in the round from the bottom up, decreasing both the number of stitches and needle size toward the top. Finished circumference at the top is 25.25" and 28.5" at the bottom, and it measures 11.5" high. The cowl can be hand washed and dried flat. Brooklyn Tweed has assigned this design a skill level rating of 3 out of 5.
The High Pines Cowl uses Arbor, made by Brooklyn Tweed. This is a DK weight yarn that is made using three worsted-spun plies firmly twisted together, creating a smooth yarn with excellent stitch definition.
