Alpha Alpha Alpha Alpha Alpha Alpha Alpha


Pattern languages available: English (US)



Alpha is a strong and bold cowl that is set apart from the pack and not afraid to make a fashion statement. And a very quick knit with no blocking required!

The bottom edge will stretch out to 50” if you like to wear it across your shoulders instead of as a cowl.

With so many shades of this stunning gradient yarn you can define your look to suit your personality. (Please note that the two outdoor shots portray it as blue/grey but it is grey).

The stitches are simple, the cables are not even real cables but a simpler combination of stitches that produce the effective look of cables, without all the fuss.
The cast off is an I-cord method but you can easily use your preferred cast off.
