The Apiarist Cowl boasts loads of texture, in a fun honeycomb formation throughout, with a simple, versatile ribbed cuff on both ends. Created with DK and Mohair, it offers the perfect sense of cozy for those cooler months, while not being overbearing or having shawl ends always coming untucked. Quick, simple, yet oh so satisfying.
