“I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.”
-Agent Dale Cooper

At first glance, this cowl appears to have two different sets of stripes, one thick and the other thin. From far away, the thinner stripes seem to exist on top of a layer of thick stripes, almost jumping out in space. Look closer and you will see the two stripe patterns are actually intertwined. The cowl uses short rows as part of the chevron motif to change the scale of each stripe, creating the illusion of multiple patterns.
