Calypso is the name of a fluvial island located on the Dordogne river (Lot department) at the Périgord border. Calypso is a small, light cowl to wear at spring, on fresh days. It is knitted bottom up in the round, adorned with a band of Scandinavian-inspired roses and broadens slightly at the bottom. A few short rows make this cowl gently dive forward to cover the chest without to much cloth on the neck. Finally a drawstring allows you to snug it up.
