Wheatsheaf is a cowl to match our Wheatsheaf Hat and can be made with either DK or Aran (Worsted) weight yarn.

The cable pattern reminds me of a wheatsheaf, hence the name, but bluesocks thought they looked like X’s for kisses. Either way, I love it. It’s a quick knit, great way to use up small amounts of yarn and you can make a matching set as a gift.

The cable pattern has both charted and written instructions.
