A top-down unisex cowl decorated with a large cabled section on the front. The cowl reaches to just under the chin and flares out in the neck area to cover throat, neck and shoulders. Perfect when worn under a jacket or coat, it gives the illusion of wearing a whole rugged sweater when you actually only wear the neckpiece.
The cowl is fully knitted in the round. The yarn I used, a soft but very tough at the same time wool, can be bought through Filmarket.it. I strongly suggest learning to work cables without a cable needle to knit this cowl to speed things up.
