I wanted something big and squooshy and textured for this design. A slipped stitch motif gives the fabric an extra lofty feel, while adding texture and depth to the background for the cables, which are placed off center on the long wrap.

This one is easy to alter for depth or width, and instructions are given in the pattern. Three sizes are given, for a short, long or medium cowl. The sample is knit to the largest size.

The Ultra Alpaca comes in every possible color imaginable, and the subtle heather in the yarn adds to the beauty of the stitch motif. It’s light and warm and soft - and a bargain :)
