This reversible, cabled cowl is destined to become a wardrobe staple. After all, who doesn’t want a timeless accessory that’s light enough to wear almost year-round (at least in the Pacific Northwest)? Made with lace-weight yarn, the little waves, or ondelettes, create a cozy fabric you’ll want to wrap around your neck and never take off. Just be warned, your friends will want one, too!
