Inspired by Iceland’s North Atlantic landscapes, the Seascape Cowl is a modern twist on granny chic. Crocheted in three colors of Ístex Álafoss Létt Lopi, the cowl is constructed from solid granny squares joined on the diagonal and edged in back-loop double crochet ripples. Worn with a tailored coat or an oversized cardigan, it‘s a subtle statement piece that can take you from fall all the way through spring. It’s a great project for crocheters who enjoy the challenge of mixing techniques for interesting results.
