Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit
  • Purl
  • Cast on
  • Bind off
  • Basic pattern reading skills

Pattern Description:

Acadia Loop is an easy, 1-skein unisex cowl pattern knit in the round. It uses The Fibre Company's Acadia, a soft, rustic yarn that has beautiful drape.

This pattern includes:
* detailed instructions
* photo tutorial on how to do a knitted hem

Because of the tweed texture of this yarn, the simple stitch pattern of the cowl allows the yarn to take center-stage.The bottom of the cowl uses a knitted hem technique to provide both stability as well as a tailored appearance. This pattern contains visuals to help guide you on how to do this technique.
Named after both the yarn as well as the famous Acadia National Park's "Park Loop Road", Acadia Loop drapes softly on the neck and is both rustic and comfy at the same time.
