|I initially designed and made this for my friend Alan.
He likes to be warm and snug but doesn’t like to get too over heated.
This cowl can be opened up as much as you like but since it is joined
at the bottom it will not fall off. This very large cowl is ideal for
the cold weather of Autumn and Winter.
Made from super soft yarn, it is incredibly comfortable.
5 press studs down the front can be opened easily to let in a little air
if you get too warm. The press studs have non functioning silver buttons
covering them, purely for the design. The cowl pulls on over your head
so it will not fall off if you open too many press studs.
There are lots of different ways to wear this.
