This cowl was designed for Shall We Knit?’s retreat in November 2017, using the featured yarn that attendees received in their goodie bag. Lynne Sosnowski and I were challenged to each design new pattern using the same yarn. I created this buttoned cowl and Lynne designed Benmiller Rendezvous Mitts.

The inspiration for the cowl came from S Curve road signs.
