This trio of chevron-patterned cowls is named for Cooper, the dyer’s charming lunkhead of a yellow lab. Cooper was bred to be a Seeing Eye dog, but sadly, he “lacked focus” to continue in his training. (No worries, he now enjoys life as a beloved family pet.)

Similarly, the ever-changing hues of these cowls -- worked in an easily memorized stitch pattern -- are perfect for those of us who don’t like to focus on any one color for too long. Choose from a subtly shifting gradient, a vibrant mix of colors, or graphic colorblocking — all in a wonderfully soft, brilliantly dyed MCN base from Marianated Yarns.

This pattern contains both fully charted and written instructions.
