Icelandic Star Cowl

As seen in Knitscene

Icelandic Star is a cowl-like piece meant to be worn as a playful warming layer for a pop of bright color. The shape is large enough around to pull down over the arms or to gather above the shoulders, with a bold scale Icelandic star worked in intarsia for fun graphic interest. Worked flat from the top down.
