Want a cabled cowl, but easier to make and without a cable needle? Then this pattern is for you. It is knit in the round, minimal purling, no seaming or grafting. When you are done, weave in the ends and wear with confidence. The fabric does bias slightly, but that enhances the wearability of the cowl.
Skills required are Cast on, knit, purl, yarn over, ssk, & bind off!
Use a soft DK weight yarn and enjoy your accomplishment!
