Knitted with a chunky aran weight yarn, this cozy cowl will be sure you keep you nice and toasty when the colder months set in. It’s a quick and fun knit combining 3 different cable stitch patterns and at the end you get to drop stitches - on purpose! The end result is a gorgeous cabled cowl that sits comfortably around the neck and shoulders and is the perfect accessory to grab as you head out the door to start your day. You could knit this up over the weekend - making it ideal for gift knitting too!

The pattern is both written and charted and has been professionally tech edited and test knit.
