Pattern Description:

The Geometry in Motion cowl pattern is a versatile design, which compliments any outfit. The diamond pattern moves with you creating stunning visual effects. Keep warm, stylish, and comfy through the workday, on the go, or chilling with friends at the pool hall. Knit in Kollage's Milky Whey, a milk soy blend, these cowls are as soft as angora but animal fiber (and cruelty) free.

This cowl pattern set includes written directions, pictures, and a chart for both a button-up version, which is knit flat, and an over the head version, which is knit in the round version. Tech edited by Katherine Vaughan.
