Tiltawhirl Cowl is a great small project for someone who’s done one or two simple cabled projects and wants to try something with an extra twist (pun intended). The cable itself leans to the left.
It’s worked in the round with a shifting beginning of round marker. Top and bottom edges are ribbed.
Because of the small repeat, the size of this cowl is very customizable if you choose to work a different size than those offered; just increase or decrease your cast on stitch count in multiples of 7.
