Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit & purl
  • Cable
  • Seam (or graft)

Pattern Description:

This lovely cabled cowl will help you remember your little princess before she regularly rolled her eyes at you. And it might even help you forget that one time she woke up with bubble gum in her hair. The Bubble Gum in her hair Cowl is knit flat and is finished with a seam (or use a provisional cast on and graft the edges together). Or leave it unseamed and wear it as a scarf. **Use either worsted weight yarn or sport weight yarn; the pattern includes directions for both weights.** Written directions and charts are also provided.

Sizes: Short (Long) = 21 (50)" circumference and 6.5 (6.5)" tall, but easily customizable.
