    • Suitable for advanced beginners

    Cable crossings over 2 x 4 ribbing give this bulky cowl a lot of texture. The stitch pattern looks especially beautiful in hand-dyes.

    Skills needed: multi-step cables, sewn bind off (see link at end of pattern)

    This cowl is easily resized or modified for a different gauge.

    Finished measurements: approximately 14 cm tall and 53.5 cm in circumference

    Gauge: 11 stitches and 16 rounds to 10 cm of stockinette; 16 stitches and 17 rounds to 10 cm of cable pattern (see swatching instructions)

    Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
