The Floribunda cowl is knitted to fit snugly around the neck and give you warmth where you need it. It can be worn folded double or pulled right up to the nose, as weather and mood changes. Both the lower and upper edges have decorative picot borders which are made from a round of yarn overs that are then folded to make the picots. The bottom edge has a wider circumference and a taller fold to lay flat and not let any cold breezes in. The upper edge is narrower so as not to create a too heavy an edge. The lace pattern runs all the way from the bottom to the top and consists of a simple repeat over four rounds.
