Forty miles east of Portland on the Columbia River, the Bonneville Dam was built to power New Deal economic development for humans but presented a literally insurmountable barrier for fish. Fish ladders were built to help hundreds of thousands of salmon and other fish make their spawning runs upriver each year.
Evoking the stair-step structure of the fish ladders, this cowl uses a triple-crochet stitch and long chains to create a loose, airy, netlike fabric — more suitable for catching well-accessorized humans than speeding salmon.
This pattern was originally published as Twisted’s crochet contribution to the 2018 Rose City Yarn Crawl.
Cowl shown in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Super Sparkle, colorway Smoke On the Water.
