The dramatic, scrolling cables featured in this unique and striking cowl recall the Rococo period, and we love it! Wear it on top of your jacket to make a statement, or for a subtler look tuck it underneath – either way you’ll find that the Boudreaux cowl will keep you warm and cozy, and it will be the apple of every knitter’s eye. This little masterpiece knits up very quickly, too!

The Boudreaux Cowl is knit in the round from the bottom up. Change colors using the stranded method. During the Cable pattern and Ribbing pattern, hold a strand of each color throughout the round, changing colors where indicated. When there are too few stitches to fit on the 32” circular needle, switch to the 16” length.
