Our friend Annabella Serra rarely knits from a pattern. She just takes off and makes it up as she goes! We love this cowl she created — with its lavish length and unexpected switch from rib to stockinette — and she was kind enough to share it with us. Knit in a sublimely soft pairing of Alchemy hand-dyed yarns, it’ll be the most versatile piece you own.
