he Triangle region of North Carolina inspired this trio of versatile cowls. Raleigh features upright stitches that reflect the traditional vibe of the state capitol. Durham’s pattern repeat highlights the wave that marks that city’s transition from mill town to funky town, while the stitch pattern in Chapel Hill suggests the argyle synonymous with this buttoned-down college town.

Three balls of fingering weight yarn will yield three cowls that can be layered or worn alone. Just add more stitches for a troika of longer cowls that will drape beautifully and look smashing as you stroll to the coffee house, the statehouse, or the field house.

Use three colors of fingering weight yarn, one skein of each color. You’ll need about 200 yds 183 m of Color A and about 160 yds 146 m of Colors B & C.
