the Shift

This amazing and popular textured cowl is a highly engaging knit! The Shift is ever-changing, enveloping, soft, and makes the perfect accessory. It’s designed to be super easy to wear and the detailed pattern is well written and easy to follow. The toughest part is choosing yarn colors! But, honestly, you can’t go wrong with your choices.

The cowl is worked flat and seamed.

(A word about gauge. If the size of your Shift is of major importance to you, please swatch and get gauge before the first class.)
