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
