While I recognize that those of us that are a certain age will have a certain song playing in our head when we knit this, the simple cable stitch in the main part of this cowl reminds me of seagulls in flight. Hence the name!

Those little bird stitches require a simple cable stitch every fourth row, but don’t be put off! If you’ve never knit cables (or rarely knit cables), this might be a good pattern for practice. I rarely knit cables but loved this stitch so much, I gave it a go. This makes the pattern just interesting enough without being so complicated you can’t do a little Netflix and knit while working on it!
