Chou is an eternity loop cowl knit in the round. It can be worn as either a long loop around your neck or it can be doubled for warmth. It is also easily modified to create a shorter and/or wider cowl. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern.
I knit the sample shown using a skein of Twisted Fiber Art's Arial Evolution in "Mon Petit Chou" which translates to "My Little Cabbage". As soon as I had this skein in hand, I knew that I wanted to evoke the curvy leaves of a cabbage and hope that you can see it in the lace.
The pattern will shine in any yarn you choose but if you need some "Mon Petit Chou" of your own, please check out Twisted Fiber Art at:

I first picked up a pair of needles in 2007 and became smitten immediately. It was as if this new, creative world just opened for me. Aided by my cat Ralph, who loves to lay on my blocking FOs, I started LeftSideKnits, as an outlet for my love of knitting. I began experimenting with designing in 2010 and it has quickly become my true love.
You can find me on Ravelry as LeftSideKnits.
