Love the stitch pattern? I’ve also featured this cable & lace motif on my Chi-Chi Slouchy Beret!

Having been generously provided with two skeins of gorgeous silk and camel blend yarn from Anzula Luxury Fibers, I wanted to create something that was a little unexpected. Knitting chunky lace with cables? Why not? The resulting cowl is both comfortable and uniquely stylish and the whole thing knits up in only a few rounds on large needles. Toss it casually over your shoulders during the summer months to ward off the breeze, or scrunch it up around your neck for a chic fall look.
