Agnate - Knit and Crochet

We here at TTD are not tied to any one crafting type.  We love to knit and we love to crochet with the occasional sewing thrown in for good measure. 

This month we are releasing two patterns, one knit and one crochet, as part of the DFW Designer Collection Volume 2.





With the collection branching out to include crochet this year, I decided that my two patterns needed to be related to each other if not identical.

Most of what I design ties back to my own story and how I got here and a lot of that was/is influenced by my brother’s passing.  This is why I chose Agnate as the name: it means related through males.

My brother and I are three months apart.  We had so much fun confusing people with that information, which came about because we are adopted.

We are Agnate through him and I hope you use the pattern to join me and other kindred spirits in bringing our craft to others, be it knit or crochet. 

The knit version, is reversible, but like identical twins do not have the same fingerprints, at its core this cowl is not an entire match front to back, but you have to look close to see the differences.


The crochet version, while not reversible front to back, has mirrored cables on the front, to denote how while we may not always look like our relatives, we can see some of them in ourselves.
 

Thank you for using my pattern to expand your fiber family tree.
