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.

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.
