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 β€œMon Petit Chou” which translates to β€œMy 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 β€œMon Petit Chou” of your own, please check out Twisted Fiber Art.
