This pattern was originally published as a part of Twisted’s Cowl Club in November 2013.

The Prime Meridian is the 0° line of longitude. A prime meridian and its opposite in a 360°-system, the 180th meridian (at 180° longitude), form a great circle. This cowl is a ring of one color slowly fading into another and then back again. It is simple and meditative and is reminiscent of celestial events such as eclipses and moon phases. Find two colors you love and show them both off to best effect.

Skill level - Advanced beginner (provisional cast on, grafting).

Needles - US #6/4 mm (or size to get gauge) for working in the round (either double points, or two circulars, or one long circular for magic loop).

Notions - Tapestry needle, stitch marker.
