Intermediate level pattern - charted & written directions

I have included directions in the pattern for completing a shorter cowl, as might be worn by a ranger for warmth whilst in the wilds of Middle Earth, or a taller hood, which can be pulled up to disguise your identity while loitering about in the Prancing Pony. Either way, Strider is a quick little knit, done up in worsted weight yarn.

The pattern is a fun little cable/lace combination that adds great depth & texture to the piece. I recommend at least a semisolid yarn to properly show off the pattern.
