Envisioned is a classic yet comfortable cowl knitted in the round. The Envisioned design features ribbing and a grouping of three columns of elongated cables. If you prefer a longer version (ponchette style), it is very simple to add additional length. Even a novice knitter can create a fashionable garment with this easy pattern!

The cables may be worn centered in front, or on either shoulder, providing the wearer flexibility to go for a more fun, asymmetrical look. You will find that this is a quick, easy and enjoyable project!

As with all Tinyknit patterns, you are welcome to sell the finished shawls you create with this pattern.
