The Lisburn Cowl began with an idea that wouldn’t leave my head: what if I made a cowl with triangular ends and ties? What if the ties threaded through buttonholes? What if the whole thing was cabled? I ended up with a rather unique cowl-wrap hybrid. I-cord ties morph into applied i-cord edgings up each side of the cowl. Knit the i-cords in a contrasting color for a little fun; instructions are included if you’d like to do so.

Skills Needed: working cables, reading from a rather extensive chart, knitting i-cord, working applied i-cord edging, increases and decreases

Sample used about 85 grams of bulky weight yarn. A solid or semi-solid colorway is your best bet for this project; the cables will be lost in anything variegated.
