Classic Cabled Cowl »
InstructionsI have a slender neck, so I probably could have made the cowl with one fewer cable repetition. With this modification it would have fit more closely around my neck. For the pattern as it is written, you definitely need the 108 yards, as the designer advises.
Type of item: Accessory
Two skeins (or 108 yards) of Lang Andina yarn (super bulky)
What was your inspiration?
I have been knitting for a little over a year now. I am eager to learn different knitting techniques. The workshop provides an excellent introduction to knitting cables. I also had never made a cowl before. The in-progress photos and the step-by-tutorial were clear and very helpful.
What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of the fact that I was able to knit the cowl fairly quickly and without any real difficulty. I love knitting cables.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
You should have the 108 yards of super bulky yarn as recommended by the designer. However, if you have a slender neck, you may wish to consider shortening it by omitting one cable repetition.
