Eveleigh is a twist on the classic cabled cowl! Knitted on the diagonal, the cables provide visual interest.
The cowl is knitted flat then sewn together to form a loop.

Knit in squishy warm garter stitch in a worsted weight yarn, Eveleigh features cables that use Lily Chin’s reversible cables technique, so the cowl looks the same on both sides.
Eveleigh is finished off with a tidy I-cord edge. Use a contrast color for a visual pop!

Make it smaller to sit on the shoulders, using just one skein of the MC, or longer to wrap around the neck twice.
