About Hexabranchus Free Knitting Pattern
Sometimes bigger really is better.
Named for the largest species of Nudibranchs ever discovered, Hexabranchus is an expansion of my Nudibranchia pattern (free in the Fall/Winter 2019 issue of Knitty).
This version super-sizes the original cowl into a jaw-dropping statement piece which just happens to use up all of one Helix Giant Gradient. Please note this is not a stand-alone pattern - you will need the instructions from the original free pattern.
