A stretchy loop in a play of motifs that change scale, creating an op-art illusion in both the structure and the surface pattern. The loop in three sizes (S/M/L) is completely versatile to wear as either a long or short cowl or a fanny band over tights and leggings. Shown here in worsted weight yarn and knit on larger needles, the piece may be easily adjusted to any diameter by adding or subtracting repeats. The yarn weight and needle size may also be varied to create further variations in the final fabric. A perfect match for our Lacunae Fingerless Mitts and Hat
