THE POTATO DOODLE COWL This Doodle chart expansion started as a ridiculous version of an April Fools joke for 2024. Fangirl Fibers, Yarnaceous Fibers, and I all decided to create a spoof-like Doodle inspired by our favorite potatoes, and now you get to knit them! BUT it’s totally a real pattern and it’s FREE!

This is a Doodle Series Pattern, which means the micro charts are intended to be used as mix-and-match colorwork motifs throughout your project.

10 Doodle Motifs included are russet potatoes, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, French fries, crinkle fries, waffle fries, potato chips, hashbrowns, and tater tots!

Potato-inspired Yarn Kits available by Fangirl Fibers and Yarnaceous Fibers.
