I wear a cowl virtually every day, all winter long! And I don’t mean just when I go out. So I am in constant need of soft-to-the touch, not-too-bulky, but still warm, easy-to-wear cowls. CABLED is exactly that!

Simple and elegant, with an I-cord edging and completely reversible cable pattern throughout, CABLED is the perfect accent that I am always looking for. And it is knit in the wonderfully light weight and extra soft Shibui Knits Drift yarn.
