A Cowl to Covet



Sometimes the jury can be out for me on whether a cowl sits comfortably and doesn't feel like it needs to be fiddled with or constantly adjusted. Not so with Vogue 1197. This is the deepest cowl I've found and the weight of it creates the perfect drape. Combine this pattern with a nice, heavy knit and it is a joy to wear. I found this beautiful houndstooth Ponte at Gorgeous Fabrics.
 
I love this pattern and I think it could easily be passed by because the pattern envelope does not do it justice. To fully appreciate it have a look at the line drawing:


I love EVERYTHING about this tunic. Especially the cowl:



And the sleeves:
