I have been knitting on and off since my teens, but became somewhat obsessed with it in 2007. I love squishy wools for the short, mild Los Angeles winters, and like cottons and blends for the rest of the year. I really believe that even beginner knitters can create something beautiful and useful, so I strive to keep patterns simple yet original. I am Goodstuff on Ravelry, and blog from time to time about knitting and life here: http://www.knitandtravelandsuch.blogspot.com/.
I have sold designs to Interweave Knits, Knitpicks, Creative Knitting magazine, KNIT magazine (Yarn Forward), Yarn magazine, Knit Now magazine, Classic Elite Yarns, The Sanguine Gryphon, and Three Irish Girls Yarns.
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.
Easy to Intermediate
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.
