Triangulate cowl is hot new knitting pattern

Bristol Ivy posted the news of her new cowl pattern on Twitter this morning. And it's a winner! The knitting designer has cleverly knit away the dangling ends of the shawl in organic worsted yarn, 'Pioneer,' produced by A Verb for Keeping Warm, a fiber arts store and natural dye studio, in Oakland, California. It's part of the California Wool Project, a collaboration with Sally Fox, who owns a merino sheep farm in Yolo County. The "Triangulate Cowl" knitting pattern is knit on US 8 needles and requires 320 yards or 2 skeins.
