This geometric motif is inspired by the Cascade Mountain Range in the Pacific Northwest. It uses repeating triangles to suggest rolling mountains across the horizon, with dots of colorwork representing misty rain. Asymmetrical patterns and seamless construction provide a sophisticated finish with a pop of fun.

The Cascades Cowl is knit in the round using circular needles. A provisional cast on and Kitchener stitch create a seamless finish. This pattern uses a series of stranded colorwork motifs, Latvian braid, and corrugated ribbing, to create unique color and texture.
