Have you ever heard the phrase… ‘There’s no angry way to say bubbles’? Well, I would definitely have to agree with that! Whether it’s underwater bubbles or the soapy kind we blow with wands, bubbles symbolize relaxation and happiness. Add some joy to your day by knitting up these luvable bubbles (luvabubble). Create this easy bubble stitch cowl using simple increases and decreases.

Pattern Notes
When working the decrease stitches, keep the stitches on your needle close together and snug up on the working yarn to help cinch the stitches together. This will encourage the formation of the bubbles. If you would like a closer fitting cowl, the pattern is in multiples of 8 sts; and each repeat is 2 inches.
