Bethune Street was where my Nanny lived in upstate NY. She loved to wear repeating patterns on her shirts. This pattern is an homage to her class, style and a “thank you” to her for sharing her knitting knowledge and (dpns) with me.

The cowl is knit as a color work tube in the round and seamed as a mobius or flat. The size is customizable by changing the number of rows worked and the color options endless.
