This piece was co-designed by sarah-marie belcastro and Madison Stuart. Evelyn Lamb wrote a blog post about sarah-marie's knitted torus links, and opened with a picture of the (5,3) torus knot cowl sarah-marie had made for Madison. She then gave an image of the (probably) most famous link, the Borromean rings. sarah-marie thought, *There should be a Borromean ring cowl!* and proceeded to search for such a pattern or project or post and, coming up with nothing, decided one should be made as soon as possible. That evening, she handed some yarn scraps to Madison and asked her to cast on. The next morning, she started typing up this pattern. And the rest is history. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit stitch, cast on, bind off GAUGE Any gauge of yarn will work well. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 22" circumference

Recommended with this pattern

  • a 16"--20" (or 24") circular knitting needle
  • ~20 yds/m in each of 3 colors of yarn
  • one stitch marker

I'm a math professor by trade, and (unsurprisingly) my designs are informed by mathematical concepts. I co-edited the books <i>Making Mathematics with Needlework: Ten Papers and Ten Projects</i> and <i>Crafting by Concepts: Fiber Arts and Mathematics</i> with my colleague and friend Carolyn Yackel.
