Pattern Description:

Having been generously provided with two skeins of gorgeous silk and camel blend yarn from Anzula Luxury Fibers, I wanted to create something that was a little unexpected. Knitting chunky lace with cables? Why not? The resulting cowl is both comfortable and uniquely stylish and the whole thing knits up in only a few rounds on large needles. Toss it casually over your shoulders during the summer months to ward off the breeze, or scrunch it up around your neck for a chic fall look.

This pattern contains 4 sizes and gives instructions for using a DK weight yarn held doubled (as pictured) or a single strand of heavy worsted weight yarn. Sample is shown in smallest size. Full color, 3 page PDF includes both a chart and written instructions for each round of the pattern.
