There’s always a moment every autumn when I suddenly realise that none of my vast collection of cozy knitted accessories is right. I need something new. This quick cabled cowl is the perfect solution to sudden new FO needs - it works up in a matter of hours, so it’s perfect for unexpected cold snaps, last minute holiday presents or the sure knowledge that nothing currently in your closet is suitable. Tubular cast on and bind off ensure perfectly matching edges, and the thick cable in super thick yarn makes a snuggly neck warmer you’ll wear everywhere.

SKILLS NEEDED
Knitting, purling, working in the round, cabling, tubular cast on and bind off.
