This simple cowl blends two of my favorite things in knitting - simple lace and simple cables - and ends up with a nifty shape that reminds me of ships’ keels. The points help the cowl fit nicely into the neck of a coat - leaving room for your chin and shoulders while giving a little length at the ears.
