this super warm cowl with cables travelling across ribbing is designed to stay snug to the neck while also being stretchy enough to drape over a coat collar.
the instructions include a small size (uses 200 yards -- pictured in Sticky Toffee) and a large size (uses 400 yards -- pictured in Doodlebug), both made in Plucky Knitter Traveler Aran. You could easily substitute another aran or heavy worsted weight yarn.
directions for the cable pattern are charted only -- not written out.
thanks to test-knitter extraordinaire, hmarsh!!!!
