Triangles and parallelograms transform leftover linen yarn into a uniquely constructed shape shifting cowl that keeps the little grey cells engaged while actually being a simple knit. Pitch Cowl harkens to baseball stripes, geometry love, and bias construction, with just a touch of elegance in the top running edging.

The tech edited & test knit pattern includes written directions and a work flow schematic. Check out the You Tube “Pitch Cowl Short Row Triangle Demo” for a demonstration on Triangle 2.
