Newly Updated Pattern! Hypotenuse cowl now includes detailed instructions on how to graft it in pattern, and it now also includes a chart and additional tips.

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.
