Shifting Sands Cowl

Shifting Sands Cowl

Shifting Sands Cowl is a top-down, lightweight cowl that features some breezy lace patterns, providing amazing drape and movement. The cowl can be worn in multiple ways, making it an excellent transitional piece.


The lace is reminiscent of the water ripples and swirls trailing back to the ocean and the way the ocean recedes over a pebble or shell left in the sand.


The pattern includes both written and charted instructions.
