Potato Leaf Cowl is a geometric cowl mimicking the leaf pattern of the potato. Potatoes play a quiet, yet important role in the dietary culture of people worldwide. She is an unassuming and hardy plant, does not demand much attention, and has nourished families for generations. This cowl hopes to give her a little credit for her part in our lives and celebrate her beauty.
Each purchase of the Potato Leaf Cowl will come with two pdf options to download: The Whole Pattern In All Its Glory and The Printer Friendly Version. The Whole Pattern contains helpful notes, beautiful pictures and an abundance of color and is perfect for reading a pattern from a device. The Printer Friendly Version is simply “printer friendly”! It contains only information needed to create the cowl. All the fluff and some helpful notes are eliminated in addition to the ink consuming beauty.
