A stranded colorwork cowl worked in the round with picot edges gets a luxurious lift from the yarn. "Zealana Kiwi has a beautiful light halo that is well suited to colorwork," says Julia. "It is a lovely soft yarn that provides warmth as well as drape and makes a cozy fabric perfect for wearing next to the skin as a scarf or cowl."
