Ready to put your favourite, beautiful skeins of yarn to work? The Slanted Stripes cowl is the perfect canvas for variegated, self-striping, or speckled yarns, or just your favourite skein of hand dyed perfection! It utilizes a simple chevron shape — it’s easy knitting, but super rewarding too! And it’s versatile. Turn your tube so different spots of the chevron are facing out and get perfect symmetry or a slightly off-kilter look. Add it to your favourite neutral outfit for a pop of colour, or make it in striping naturals to go with anything.
