The movement of the stitches mimics the motion of a cable, but instead comes from a creative placement of increase and decrease stitches. The cowl is worked in the round in a single pieceno sewing or seaming is required. Points on both ends can be emphasized during blocking. Finished cowl can be worn with either edge facing up.

I have knit and crocheted, and done various forms of embroidery and needlepoint since early grammar school. Making things with bits of colored string is so integral to my being that the few times of my life when I don't have *something* on the go feel empty, and without form.
