Hellebore Cowl, Reversible

$7.00

This winter floral design is a reversible, double thick cowl, with colorwork inspired by the evergreen perennial Hellebore flower. This flower also goes by the name “winter rose” or “Christmas rose,” so I’ve paired it with a wintery green interior, contrasting against the timeless neutral colorwork exterior.
