A nautical cabled cowl with draw-cord fastening and rippled textures, inspired by the rugged West Cornwall coast.
The all-over cable pattern is deceptively simple and makes for a snug fabric that’s sure to keep those sea (or land!) breezes at bay. Picot edging and pompom fastening add a touch of class.
The garment is worked in one piece, in the round. Both written and charted cable instructions are provided as well as a photo-tutorial for creating the carrier. It’s a one-skein project designed for our Awesome Aran yarn.
Adventurous – suitable for knitters with previous experience of cable knitting and knitting in-the-round.
