Surreal times call for calming and luxurious knits. The Surrealist Cowl is simple textural project and a lusciously soft layering piece with fabulous drape. The expanding and contracting checkerboard patterns showcase many types of yarns beautifully – from self-stripe to hand dyed to solids and tweeds.
The Surrealist Cowl is worked in the round. Pattern is written as well as charted – knit according to preference.
