This punchy cowl switches from Hero to Mild-Mannered Alter Ego with a flick of the wrist (no telephone booth required). Designed especially to play nice with high-contrast colorful hand-dyed yarn, the Hero side features wham-bam-kapow dots; the Alter Ego conceals the yarn’s true identity with suspiciously ordinary ribbing.
Kapow is a collaboration between you and the yarn dyer. You decide which colors will be highlighted as dots, and which ones will form the striped background; the yarn decides how large those dots will be and where they occur. The final pattern will emerge from these choices.
The dots use special increases and decreases that are fully described in the pattern. The dots are both charted and written.
