Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Increase, decrease
  • I-cord
  • Cables

Pattern Description:

This is like a classic cabled cowl, but turned on an angle. Knitted on the diagonal, the cables run diagonally around the cowl.
The cowl will be knitted flat then sewn together to form a loop.
Make it smaller to sit on the shoulders, using just one skein of the MC, or longer to wrap around the neck twice.
Knit in squishy warm garter stitch in a worsted weight yarn, this piece features cables that use Lily Chin's reversible cables technique, so the cowl looks the same on both sides.
An i-cord edge in a contrasting color really makes it pop.

Skill Level
Easy to Intermediate

Finished Size
9 in/22.5 cm high x 28 in/70 cm around
Note: Cowl can be made longer by continuing piece as long as desired. You will need a second skein of MC.
