Pattern Description from Stitch ‘n Bitch: “This cowl has a loopy, shaggy edge that can be worn around the face or around the neck for a more sedate look. It fits snugly, and soft merino wool makes it warm and comfortable.”

Size: 18” circumference x 13” long

Skills: Cast on, knit, purl, knit in the round, loop stitch, bind off


  • Karabella Aurora 8 (100% merino wool; 50g/98yds) 4 skeins #0008 Orange
  • US 7 (4.5mm) 16” circular needle, or size needed to obtain gauge

Note from Stitch ‘n Bitch: “This loop stitch is not as complicated as it seems. It takes a few stitches to get into the groove, but if you stick with it, you’ll be glad you did. It’s meant to be shaggy and loopy and kind of crazy-looking, so don’t despair if your loopy stitches aren’t perfectly uniform. Anyway, you only have to do it 4 times, and then it’s smooth sailing.”

Pattern is on pages 167-168.
