The Mount Woodring cowl is one of nine patterns in Independent Fabrication: Volume 2, a collection of accessory patterns in small-batch yarn. The print + eBook bundle is currently available for pre-order from Tightly Knit and Sandreed Press; the individual patterns and eBook-only options are available on Ravelry.

Boldly colored, richly textured, and elegantly draped, the Mount Woodring cowl runs high on drama. Nested sets of 3x3 cables twist the fabric into cascading, three-dimensional folds, while the airy, lofty cable-spun yarn keeps the finished cowl light and effortless to wear. A hint of silk content adds shine and drape to this generously-sized cowl, which makes an eye-catching transition piece for fall and into the deeper winter months.
