We love a grand statement cowl—warm and snuggly, graphic enough to read from a mile away, and at home paired with almost anything. Promenade by Sloane Rosenthal, named after the historic Brooklyn walkway overlooking the spectacular lower Manhattan skyline, is created holding Forge double for a chunky and satisfying gauge. This cozy cowl is worked in the round from the bottom up.
