This warm, this playfully textured cowl in three sizes (S/M/L) is just the thing to reach for once the fall winds begin to howl. Worked entirely in the round, the easy to master knit/purl panels are accented by cabled “fence posts”. The unisex design works up speedily in a light, lofty sport weight yarn for a gift that will appeal to any member of the family. This project travels well and is a good choice for knitters new to cable stitch work.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
