The Offset tube cowl is a “choose your own adventure” style pattern. Designed with mini skeins in mind, simple colorwork motifs build a shifting flow of colors as you move from mini to mini and motif to motif. Written in two sizes, this cowl can be easily customized to incorporate additional colorwork sections for the length you desire.
Offset was originally designed as part of the Fibernymph Dye Works 2022 The Art of Contrast Holiday Countdown Collections.
