Cowls are the perfect accessory for keeping your neck warm without fuss, and perfect for an extra layer now as well as later – Jane Burns’ steampunk cowl in rich purple is on-trend for this season. It has an intricate (but not difficult!) cable pattern with a more delicate ‘skirt’ that drapes beautifully on the upper part of your shoulders, keeping you warm and cosy.
If you want to make it longer, just repeat rows 7 and 8 of the pattern a few times. Buttons complete the picture – go for ornate metal for an authentic steampunk look.
