I know there are a lot of cabled cowl patterns out there, but I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted so this is what I came up with :)
Big fat cables cover both sides of this double-layered, completely reversible cowl. No seams, no edges, no wrong side. Because of the all-over cables this cowl has plenty of body and won’t be all saggy around your neck. No need to double wrap it because the double layer of cables makes it very cozy. Both the stockinette and the reverse stockinette sides are attractive, pick your favorite before you graft the ends together.
Do something nice for yourself or a knit-worthy loved one and make it with yarn containing cashmere - it feels amazing around your neck. A cashmere/merino blend gives you the softness of cashmere at a reasonable price.
Even with the double layer of cables, this is a pretty quick knit - 9 out of 10 rounds are plain stockinette and there are only 3 cable crosses on the other round.
