Variable stitch choices create a cowl that provides interest on both sides of the fabric. This transition piece plays with binary space to add warmth when there’s a chill in the air.

Named in honor of CLU, a programming language created by Barbara Liskov at MIT in the mid-1970s. This pioneering language introduced many features found in modern programming languages by helping lead to the the object-oriented programming known today.

The stitch pattern plays with twisted stitches, p2togs, and eyelets to create a piece that is interesting to work and forms an interesting fabric on both sides.

The bamboo provides sheen while the superwash merino and nylon mean this cowl will work hard and still look good.
