Cable Cowl Pattern - By Kris Gregson (Digital Download)


This cowl shows off simple cables and bobbles for a fun piece that fits comfortably around the neck. The pattern looks very challenging, but in fact uses basic cable techniques. It is knit in the round with a charted pattern with no top or bottom when wearing it. Although cabling does take a bit more time to work the outcome is just lovely. ••• SKILLS USED - Increases and decreases - Knit & purl, cast on & bind off - Knitting in the round - Knitting cables with a cable needle - Reading knitting charts - Yarn overs ••• MATERIALS Yarn Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend, 70% extrafine merino wool, 30% silk (50g, approx. 150 yds, 22-24 sts = 4”/10cm) 1 skein of the color of your choice ••• Needles US#6/4.0mm 24” circular needle, OR size to obtain gauge
