A simple cabled cowl.

My first design!!

Knit as a necessity for a trip to the Quebec Winter Carnival, I needed a warm cowl that I could wear everywhere, and would be safe when I went dog sledding at the tourist area in Duchesnay, Quebec. Cowls are fantastic for winter sports like skiing and sledding because they keep you warm with the added benefit of not getting caught in things like chair-lifts and tree branches … like a scarf might. One near miss with a scarf and you’ll be into cowls forever.
