angle of incidence - the angle that a light ray or electromagnetic wave striking a surface makes with a line perpendicular to the reflecting surface

Angle of Incidence is a cowl-like capelet constructed from the top-down. A simple rib panel slants from the base of the split turtleneck to the bottom edge of the capelet. Optional crochet trim is tipped with a charm to complete the faux closure. Add this if you’re so “inclined.”
