Cablewing Wrap, Cowl and Wristwarmers. Cablewings surrounded by lace give these accessories a flowery expression. They coordinate with the Cablewing Sweater; for a wonderfully regal look pair the wrap with the sweater. It is warm, practical but also decorative. All accessories are knitted in a pure wool with bounce, Embla from Hifa. I chose an irresistible purple-pink shade, well suited for the stitch pattern, for the cowl and the wristwarmers.

I am thrilled to see photos of finished cowls appearing already, and on the design page you will find Anja Helene Præsttun Smith’s beautiful version!
