Love Me 'Till My Hearts Stop Cowl Knitting Pattern
The great thing about it is, since it's a circular cowl, the hearts never stop. Sometimes they may be hard to see, they may get a bit muddled, but they are always there.
This pattern was inspired by the Talking Heads song titled, “This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody”.
“I'm just an animal looking for a home
Share the same space for a minute or two
And you love me till my heart stops
Love me till I'm dead”
-C. Frantz / T. Weymouth / D. Byrne / J. Harrison
