This great cable set from Premier is a perfect quick knit with a surprisingly lightweight bulky yarn, Serenity Chunky Sequins. The bit of bling add sparkle without being overpowering.

The slouch is worked in the round and the cowl is worked flat. Stitches are slipped at each edge of the cowl for a smooth edge. Buttons on one end allow it to be buttoned for a cowl or unbuttoned to be worn as a scarf. It is long enough to be wrapped twice.

Slouch: 198 yards (3 balls)
Scarf/Cowl: 485 yards (6 balls)
Total: 683 yards (If working both, then 8 balls total.)

Scarf/Cowl: (4) 2” buttons
Buttons pictured are wood slice buttons from One World Button Supply Company
