With an intriguing braid-like design reminiscent of willow branches, the “Willow River Cowl” is a warm and cozy cowl. Paired with a jeans jacket, this cowl will keep out the chill on a late evening walk along the river.

The cowl begins with an I-cord cast on, followed by the textured cable pattern, and then bound off using I-cord bind off method. Knit in worsted/aran weight yarn, the cowl has an interesting cabled texture interspersed with moss stitches and works up pretty quick.

This cowl coordinates with the Willow River Hat.
