Introducing Turnt Cowl, September Lola’s Choice design and kit!

Kits for Turnt were the September ’23 shipment for Lola’s Choice (Laura’s super fun small knitted kit club). Kits are SOLD OUT so if you don't want to miss out on future kits you should SIGN UP NOW!

Turnt Cowl transforms from a Mobius twisted delight into a classic cowl construction. For those who need a quick definition, a Mobius band is a circle with a twist that creates a continuous loop with only one surface and one edge – a twisty wonder! It’s Turnt!

Drape Turnt long around your neck, double it up for extra warmth or elegantly wear it around your shoulders as a shrug, get turnt in your own unique way.

This is Lola’s first venture into novelty yarn. Inspired by the bold trends of the 80s, Make it Tweed is held alongside Biches and Buches silk mohair, creating a turnt tweed effect. Turnt Cowl is designed with simplicity in mind. Its stitches are easy to master, allowing you to create a fabric that will become an instant fall favorite

Let’s go crazy and get TURNT together!

And, I can’t make any promises BUT a little Lola-bird told me you might be able to get away with making two Turnt Cowls with the fancy novelty yarn. Just go stash diving for your second yarn. Alternatively, you can knit this with a single strand of fingering yarn, especially if you’re not really into the tweed vibes.
