Transitions Pride Cable cowl kits
SHOW YOUR PRIDE! For yourself or your beloveds! The initial Trans Pride Transitions cowl was inspired by the Trans Pride flag. After multiple requests, I adapted the pattern for other awesome Pride flags. I like the TRANSITIONS theme for all because hopefully we are ALL gaining a better understanding of the fluidity and expansiveness of both gender identity and sexual orientation. AND may we be TRANSITIONING to a new way of non-binary, non-normative thinking/assuming for ALL!
The initial pattern (and kit) was for worsted weight but I adapted to dk because we found a really soft and affordable alpaca yarn that came in 50 gram balls that we thought would be great for the kits we wanted to offer.
Kits include yarn and free printed pattern (including chart and written out instructions) to knit the specified Pride set of colorways. Patterns are also available for free on Ravelry if you don't want a kit and/or want to preview the pattern before buying the kit.

Worsted weight Trans Pride kit is made up of Manos del Uruguay Maxima which is a super soft single ply merino wool; hand dyed; hand wash
All other kits are dk weight and made up of Alpaca Yarn Co. Classic Alpaca which is 100% alpaca. DK kits come in a sweet little organza bag.
