This pattern is for any weight yarn! Shapeshifter is an asymmetrical chevron shaped knit piece which can be worn in a seemingly endless number of cowl and hooded cowl shapes! To make it even more customizable, it’s an any-gauge pattern, which means you choose absolutely any yarn you want, and pick the needles to get the gauge you like, to make a completely unique piece.

The eyelet pattern is designed for maximum versatility - with buttons at each tip, and buttonholes all over, it’s so much fun to play with different positions and shapes! While the Shapeshifter can be complicated to wear, it’s very simple to knit, and is a great pattern for a beginner looking to branch out. The chevron “lace” is just eyelet holes made with easy yarn-overs and decreases, and there is no shaping or anything, just a big, flat piece of fabric.

Size: about 17 inches wide, 22 inches long.

Yarn/needles/gauge: any yarn, any needles, any gauge; a long circular works best to hold the stitches.

Skills needed: some very basic math, decreases and increases for simple eyelet lace pattern.

The pdf is 9 pages (the pattern is on one photo-less page for printing).
