In this striking cowl, the Tunisian crochet stitch looks deceptively like knitting, but it really is done with a hook. The fabric produced by Tunisian colorwork is thick and warm, which makes it ideal for blocking out the cold weather. The graphic pattern lends itself to all manner of color combinations, so you could easily customize the tones to men’s or women’s tastes.
