This cowl was inspired by the wake a boat leaves in the water as it glides through the bay checking lobster traps. The reversible cables are ribbed, and on one side look like standard cables. On the other they blend in nicely with the stockinette stitches beside them and create a beautiful waving texture, like the surface of water after a boat has been through. It is named for a small island off the coast of Maine where lobstering is a way of life.
