This pattern is named for American mathematician Elizabeth Buchanan Cowley, fourth woman to be awarded a doctorate in mathematics from Columbia in 1908. She taught and wrote extensively on plane and solid geometry and public education. I think she’d be pleased by the geometric forms in this cowl, for which her name is remarkably apropos.
