Can’t Wait Teal Christmas Chunky Cable Cowl

Based off the classic Cozy Chunky Cable Cowl from 2014, this updated version features stunning cables and a longer length, making it the ideal infinity scarf for the season. The beauty of the different sized cables can be seen more clearly with a thick yarn, plus the added weight makes it extra warm. This cowl can be worn long or wrapped for even more coziness.
