Hexabranchus

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.
