Short Description: Rochambeau Cowlette takes its name from the game of chance also known as rock-paper-scissors and is knit top-down in three sections resembling the three elements of the game. A cowlette is an easy to wear cowl designed to mimic the look of a shawl casually draped as a scarf. All the style of a shawlette without the fuss of trying to keep it around your neck!
