Proper Motion

A new design, Proper Motion ♥ made by me exclusively for Northfield Yarn!

I completely LOVED working with Cestari dk, a wonderfully soft cotton with just a hint of wool ♥ I fell hard for the muted color palette that it’s offered in ..it was just too perfect!

A few things:
♥ I wanted to design a sophisticated cowl with fantastic structure, but also wanted it simple, enduring and classic.
♥ Even though I prefer to wear it loose (no tie) I wanted an optional cord for gathering it into lovely pleats, either horizontally or vertically.
♥ I wanted it deep and full and for it to breathe beachy summer when worn over a tank top or tee, but still be beautiful when worn in spring, fall and winter.

A Few More Things:
♥ The size is completely adjustable in length and depth (as written, it measures 15” x 42”)
♥ I think this would be beautiful in fingering weight ..or lace weight ..or worsted weight ..or even all the way up to chunky!
♥ Proper Motion is the measurement or observed motion of celestial bodies (stars) relative to the imaginary fixed background of other more distant stars over a period of many many years or centuries. (♥)
♥ I hope you love it xoxo!
