Acadia Loop is an easy 1-skein unisex neckwarmer worked in the round with DK-weight yarn and 2 size options to pick from. The bottom of the cowl uses a knitted turned hem technique (photo & video tutorials provided) to provide both stability as well as a tailored appearance.

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