This cowl is a reminder of a popular summer attraction, The Tube Chute. Long lines of people in tubes float on the river and are funneled through a narrow channel. The rapid force of water then spills them back into the river. Fun times! This "tube chute" is a more gentle activity and includes instructions for two versions. While both designs contain eyelets and color stripes, the stitch pattern sequence changes in each cowl to create a unique accessory. The cowl is constructed first as a long tube knit in the round. Then the long tube is joined at the ends to form another tube. Imagine a donut around your neck. Yum!
