This design is inspired by a fern filled forest. This loop cowl is knit in the round lengthwise. Once the desired length of the cowl has been reached, the two ends of the cowl are joined together with Kitchener stitch (link to tutorial included) to form a continuous, double-sided loop. This is an easy colorwork project and an approachable intro for those who are new to stranded knitting. I love loop cowls because they go on with out any fuss, and fit well underneath a warm winter jacket.

This pattern is available in English and Portuguese. You will receive all versions with your purchase.
