This cowl is knit flat to enhance the asymmetrical stripes in bold colours.
Two sets of instructions are provided for each size, with options for the order muppet and chaos muppet in all of us.

Order: a 3 colour cowl with detailed and structured line by line instructions.

Chaos: a framework that allows you to make creative design decisions, changing colours and strip proportions as you go.

Some days, rising from the cosmological constraints of time, space and coffee can be an exercise in existentialism. “Am I today the chaos of a muppet, or am I a muppet of chaos?” Hard questions indeed, especially before 9 a.m. Anything before the morning jolt can leave one twisted and fragmented, wrestling between layers of coloured bliss. Or it could be you left your contact lenses in too long.

Then of course there is the order of the muppet, a simple, happy place where east meets west, the stars fail to collide, and ping-pong eyes glimmer with the hope of a new day - that perfect day, where not a single stitch need be ripped out.

And in between us all, the whispers of Spatial Distortion.
