Aloha is a tubular cowl, or snood, long enough to be worn in a single or a double loop. Julie called it Aloha because it looks a bit like those flower necklaces you receive as a welcome gift in some parts of the world. Except, of course, that this one is a bit more… autumnal! And will keep you warm, above all if you loop it twice around your neck.

Knitted lengthwise, its lace pattern “climbs” along the neck on half of the cowl. Then it is followed by some stockinette. And as you begin with a provisional cast-on, and close it with a grafting, there are no visible seaming!

This listing is for a knitting pattern (pdf) for the Aloha cowl (in French and English).
