The longest side of a right triangle, opposite the right angle. Knit with two strands of Staccato held together and a tight textured stitch pattern, this cowl is bouncy and resilient. The silken right triangles catch the light in an endlessly interesting way. Knit flat and grafted to form a seamless loop, Hypotenuse is an excellent way to learn some new techniques while creating an eye-catching accessory.

Pattern note: Our team of sample knitters got gauge in the Hypotenuse Stitch Pattern using a size 5 needle, although the designer used a size 7 needle to get gauge. In order to achieve the wonderful 3-dimensional nature of this design, a dense fabric is needed. We always recommend knitting and blocking a gauge swatch for best results.
