This cowl was inspired by the quintessential 1950’s diner that brings back the nostalgia of that wonderful time. We hope you have fun making and wearing this cute and cozy cowl.​ The red is an oh so soft, squishy 100% merino dyed especially for us by Malabrigo. That’s right, our very own gorgeous color. The checkered section is from another favorite, Dream in Color Cosette, a merino/cashmere blend. Kits are available from Knitting From the Heart.
