Rift is a modern, cabled cowl knitted in the round. Rift’s deeply furrowed cable motif is inspired by the dramatic landscapes shaped by tectonic movement within the earth’s crust. This design is well suited to any solid colour of yarn, but works especially well in light colours and rich, saturated hues. It is sized to be worn wrapped twice around the neck, and is knit from the bottom-up in one piece using circular needles.

This pattern can also be found in issue 4 of Laine Magazine. See below for errata found in first printing (corrected in PDF version).
