Poplar Bark Loop is a cozy cowl created with cables and a chevron-esque rib. It is worked in the round on either 24’’(60cm) or 32”(80cm) circulars. Some testers found the 32”(80com) needle too tight for before the ribbing, and others found the body was too cramped on the 24”(60cm). Take note on what may affect you, and choose your needles accordingly.
