This cowl is inspired by summertime. If you walk down the street, you can see the kids on trampolines, going up and down, up and down. I made my cables to go up and down, too and I hope you’ll have as much fun knitting and wearing this cowl as I had designing it.
The cable pattern is placed on a garter stitch background, making it really pop. One pattern repeat includes 2 cables, alternately increasing and decreasing in width. The cowl can be worn either by twisted around twice or as a long loop which really shows off the pattern.
The pattern includes both charted and written instructions.
