This top-down, flared cowl was inspired by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s famous (and fabulous) collar, worn when she dissents from a decision by the Supreme Court.

The upper section is a simple polka dot mosaic pattern, followed by a band of larger mosaic blocks. The lower section is separated into polka dots in the back with the bejeweled bib in the front. Increases are worked into the bib portion, so the jewels get larger as you work downward, which gives the cowl its flared shape.
