Sinuous Cowl


Sinuous Cowl

The sinuous cowl is full of two color cables twisting up from one brim to the other. The pattern looks complex, but uses only one color on each round, making it relatively easy.

The cowl would look great in two solid contrasting colors or a gradient with a solid contrast color.

The pattern has been test knit and tech edited.

Sinuous also comes in a matching hat: Sinuous Hat. You can get both patterns for $9.00.
