Sculptural twisted and cabled textures are set against reverse stocking stitch panels. This cowl shows off semi-solid yarns to beautiful effect. This is also a wonderful unisex design so it can be work by both men and women.
Skills used include working in the round, knitting through the back loop, crossing stitches and cabling. This is a pattern for a good intermediate knitter, or if you’d like to stretch yourself with new techniques.
The pattern is written using contemporary chart notation and alternative written instructions, making these beautiful cables more accessible to modern knitters. The rolled edges may be omitted if preferred, so that the cowl is bordered by just the ribbing.
