Speckles and solids and colourwork combine in this deep, generous cowl. Corrugated ribbing flows into a geometric colourwork pattern with shifting foreground and background, flowing back into corrugated ribbing. The size provides warming coverage, while shaping ensures that your cowl will sit nicely around your neck. Pattern is charted only. To make Ninety Degrees, you will need to know how to knit, purl, work in the round, do stranded colourwork, and read charts.
