Roo-Loop is a cowl or long double-loop with an integrated supercosy hidden pocket in the front to keep your hands warm.
Or use it for your iPod, sunglasses, keys, etc. – what will you put in your pocket?

The cowl is constructed as a tube with a small tube inside, all knit in the round, seamlessly in one piece. The pocket part is explained with a photo-tutorial.

It’s fun to make and fun to wear ☺

The pattern contains instructions for three sizes: short, medium or long double-loop.
