Cowls are an easy and stylish alternative to scarves this season!
This one features a wonderfully easy double cable pattern to add lots of textural interest.
It knits up quickly in the round (no seams!) and can be worn like a folded-over turtleneck or scrunched down for a cool, slouchy look.
A great quick gift knit using less than 3 hanks of Cadena yarn from Knit Picks!
The cable pattern really is easy, despite how it looks. . . great for the knitter wanting to try out cables for the first time!
