All around the mulberry bush
The monkey chased the weasel
The monkey thought ‘twas all in fun
Pop! goes the weasel

Pop! Goes The Weasel is a fun pattern inspired by the children’s nursery rhyme of the same name. This cowl is a great way to add some childlike happiness and nonsense to your wardrobe! I dare you not to get the tune stuck in your head as you make each bobble or “Pop!”

Pop! Goes The Weasel is part of the Fun & Games Collection for 2019. This first pattern in the series is a crochet cowl that makes a perfect transition piece for those chilly evenings when things are still a bit too cold to go without something warm. This triangular cowl starts flat, then is joined to work in the round, and ends with a picot edging. No seaming!
