Knit some cozy cables with this simple and warm cowl pattern. Use three skeins of DK weight wool like West Wool Tandem to knit the antler cables. The cables begin small and increase into larger cables to raise the fabric at the back of the neck. This cowl is knit in the round and then seamed together for a double-thick winter accessory. A color pop I-cord bind off adds a flash of color to the textural design.

I’m wearing the Neji hat by Olga Buraya-Kefelian in West Wool Tandem (Aquamarine colorway) together with The Antler Cowl.
