I love that knitting has such capacity for play, for “what if?”. In this cowl, I wanted to play with off-centre chevrons, and then see what might happen once I filled those in with non-traditional entrelac shapes. It showcases the best of both of knitting’s worlds: it is a fun, playful exploration of technique and graphic design, and it keeps you warm and cosy at the same time.
