A sister pattern to my crochet Snowfall on the Bowery Wrap, the knit Flurries in the Wind Wrap is inspired by blustery snowfall under a streetlamp on a winter’s night. This blanket wrap will keep you snug and comforted at home or protected from the chill if you decide to venture out into the night, and it can be worn wrapped around the shoulders or bunched up around the neck like a scarf.

This cowl is a statement piece that looks high end and will keep you very warm and cozy!
