The bandit Pitch Cowl

Pitch Cowl

Lindsay Lewchuk2016 New Releases, Cowls, How-to Videos, Men, Patterns

Triangles and parallelograms transform leftover linen yarn into a uniquely constructed shape shifting cowl that keeps the little grey cells engaged while actually being a simple knit. Pitch Cowl harkens to baseball stripes, geometry love, and bias construction, with just a touch of elegance in the top running edging.

The tech edited & test knit pattern includes written directions and a work flow schematic. Also, on You Tube, there is a demo for Triangle 2.
