A companion piece to The Great Missowski, my homage to Jeff Bridges and Missoni, the Missowski Slouchy was designed to fashionably eat up all those pesky leftovers, so that you can make full use of your fabulous yarn. The pattern employs a simple slipped stitch pattern of 4 stitches and 4 rows to create the look of chevrons. I’ve provided a detailed post on choosing alternate colorways. Look for a matching cowl in the near future.

The individual pattern is available for purchase in pdf format for $6.

Or as part of the Missowski Collection ebook for $14.
