Ones and Zeroes Cowl

ONES AND ZEROES is a top-down, bandana-style cowl alternating bands of 1x2 twisted rib with a symmetrical mesh lace. Perfect for early spring or fall, ONES AND ZEROES is easy to throw on during those not-quite-warm-enough days that still have a bit of bite to the breeze.

This pattern is for you if… You like very short repeats that are easy to memorize.
