This fun cowl features a unique stitch pattern that works wonderfully with the ombre colorways from hand dyer Tina Whitmore.
The grid of this textured snood reminds me of a fence latticework and is achieved by working staggered motifs of ribbing and eyelets. Both providing positive and negative space for a densely knit fabric that transforms into 3 dimensional surface design with plenty of stretch and styling possibilities. Shown in ombré yarns to add playfulness through color to this accessory.

This piece is really a wonderful staple for fall. I plan on pairing it with some staple pieces that will work for early spring and fall. For shoes, I recently acquired the Rag & Bone shoes below from the Shoe Hive – a great pair that work for two or three seasons! This top is also from the Shoe Hive – the Jeffrey Pullover from One Grey Day. These AG boyfriend jeans are from Periwinkle (this is one of my FAVORITE denim brands), which just reopened a new location on S. Columbus Street and the relaxed style will be both comfy and on trend.
