Short Description: Tinos (named for a serene Greek island) is a fun little cowl designed to resemble the look of an asymmetrical triangular shawl wrapped around the neck. It is worked flat from one corner to the next in a pretty, textured, slipped stitch stripe pattern – a series of increases and decreases form its shape, and one little seam up the back makes it a cowl. Designed for Anzula’s gorgeous new cashmere yarn, Serenity, Tinos is a perfect way to use those special skeins of luxury yarn and put them on display!
