Wired Cowl knitting pattern for sport-weight yarn

$7 CAD

Worked in the round with increases on either side of the cable, this cowl is cozy and bandana-like. It’s practically superpowered:

✔️ it really shows off a speckled/variegated colourway (looks great in solids, too)
✔️ it makes great use of 1 skein of sport weight
✔️ the cowl looks like a shawl but can’t fall off
✔️ it tucks under a coat so perfectly
✔️ the tips for altering the length mean you can use all of the gorgeous yarn you’ve got

There’s a matching set of fingerless mittens, too! Click here to see them.
