Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round

Pattern Description:

Tofino is a sleep little town in British Columbia, on the very western tip of Vancouver Island. Some people love to vacation there in the summer to soak up the sun. But other, more adventurous souls, go there in the winter to watch the storms that rage across the Pacific.

The sweeping extended cables in this cowl are reminiscent of giant, wind-driven waves. Worked in super bulky yarn, it's such a quick knit that you're sure to get it done before the storm hits. And it's the perfect cozy accessory to keep you warm in spite of the weather.
