Inspired by my favorite ride at my favorite theme park, this cowl should remind you of a certain giant geodesic sphere in central Florida. This pattern is made up of modularly knit isosceles triangles. Keep yourself warm with the power of geometry!

You don’t need to be exactly on gauge, as long as you are making a fabric you like and your triangles hold their shape nicely, your gauge is good.

Because this is knit modularly and you do have to cut the yarn between each triangle module, there are a lot of ends to weave in. The ends are also used to make the triangle points more neat and tidy.
