Prime Meridian Cowl pattern - by Courtney Sherwood
The Prime Meridian is the 0° line of longitude. A prime meridian and its opposite in a 360°-system, the 180th meridian (at 180° longitude), form a great circle. This cowl is a ring of one color slowly fading into another and then back again. It is simple and meditative and is reminiscent of celestial events such as eclipses and moon phases. Find two colors you love and show them both off to best effect.
