Worked entirely in stockinette stitch, Ripken is a cowl that takes full advantage of the softness and beauty of cashmere. There is no texture or lace that breaks the even surface of the fabric, and the stripes on the bias add just the right amount of interest to this piece.
Ripken is a versatile accessory. Wrap it around your neck once, twice or even three times, wear it like a shawl or as a hooded scarf.
Be creative and try out other color combinations. Maybe a light beige and grey for a subtle office shawl? Or something crazy that pops out? Or just go with your alltime favourites.
Either way you decide, Ripken will be a good companion to you from fall to spring.
