Aloha is a tubular cowl, with a lace stitch pattern that blooms and climb along the neck on one half of the cowl. It is then continued in stockinette stitch and closed with a grafting to hide any seam.
It can be worn making one or two rounds, which, with its double layer, makes it your best ally against cold weather!
I named it Aloha because it makes me think of those flower necklaces offered in the exotic islands to wih you a warm welcome, but of course this one is more… automnal! But it will surely also warm up necks and hearts…
One size – Final circumference of the cowl: approx 150 cm, adaptable to your desire for a width of approx 17 cm, in double layer.
22 sts and 27 rounds = 10 cm/4’’ in stockinette stitch in the round.
(note that gauge is not crucial, you can easily adjust for another kind of yarn but please note this will affect final sizes and yarn requirements)
