Inspired by the many geometric shapes present in American Indian motifs, this cowl features a stunning diamond cable along one edge, while the opposite edge continues the deeply textural feel by incorporating broken rib. Self-finished as you go with non-rolling ribbed treatments, this simple, seamless cowl can be worn with the cable on the top or the bottom, and knits up quickly due to cables that cross only on right side rows! Want a larger version? Work the cable motif in a second color, and watch it really pop!

Both charts and written instructions are included in this 3-page PDF.
