Ausable can be made as a classic cowl or an elegant scarf. The simple lace-and-cable pattern along with the great patterning of the lovely silk yarn create the perfect accessory to add flair to your wardrobe. Both the cowl and the scarf are knitted flat. The cowl uses a provisional cast-on which is then grafted to the live stitches at the end to form the loop. Tassels are optional!

The pattern includes written instructions and charts.
