SPREAD the LOVE I’m feeling the winter doldrums and want to spread a little cheer and love. 50% off all my patterns!!

Chou is an eternity loop cowl knit in the round. It can be worn as either a long loop around your neck or it can be doubled for warmth. It is also easily modified to create a shorter and/or wider cowl. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern.

I knit the sample shown using a skein of Twisted Fiber Art’s Arial Evolution in “Mon Petit Chou” which translates to “My Little Cabbage”. As soon as I had this skein in hand, I knew that I wanted to evoke the curvy leaves of a cabbage and hope that you can see it in the lace.

The pattern will shine in any yarn you choose but if you need some “Mon Petit Chou” of your own, please check out Twisted Fiber Art.
