The Cadenza cowl and shrug reflects the running passage of a cadenza in music. There it decorates the main theme of a concerto. Here it decorates you.
Essentially a long, circular piece, ruffled along one side with short row shaping, it can be worn in myriad ways: as a long, loose cowl, as a cosy neck warmer, as a shrug, or as a capelet when pulled closer and pinned at one shoulder.
An easy piece of knitting that looks like virtuoso playing.
