Torcello Cowl

Featuring stranded colourwork knitted in the round, with a chevron lower edging and a knitted on lace top edging, this cowl is inspired by a mosaic pavement in Torcello, Venice. The hand dyed yarns by Madelinetosh and The Yarn Collective imitate the mottled colours of the ancient marble.
