I needed to make a few quick items for Christmas presents and in New Jersey where the winters can be tricky, what better to give then a cowl. Many people don't want the length and bulkiness of a scarf and this is a great alternative.
This is a perfect item for a cable stitch beginner. It looks much more complicated than it is and it really knits up very quickly. Given as a gift, the recipient will think you spent much more time on this than you actually did.

I have been crafting for almost 50 years, which includes knitting, crocheting and sewing. Any craft I can do with my hands has given me joy. I have always played with designing even as a child, but have seriously devoted time to knit design the last 5 years. I knit and sew for my 3 children (now grown) and my 5 grandchildren.
