Acadia Loop is an easy, 1-skein unisex cowl pattern knit in the round. It uses The Fibre Company’s Acadia, a soft, rustic yarn that has beautiful drape.

This pattern includes:

  • detailed instructions
  • photo tutorial on how to do a knitted hem

Because of the tweed texture of this yarn, the simple stitch pattern of the cowl allows the yarn
to take center-stage.The bottom of the cowl uses a knitted hem technique to provide both stability as well as a tailored appearance. This pattern contains visuals to help guide you on how to do this technique.

Named after both the yarn as well as the famous Acadia National Park’s β€œPark Loop Road”, Acadia Loop drapes softly
on the neck and is both rustic and comfy at the same time.
